Default Tomato setting frustrations

This has sure been an inactive thread. I hope you all are not feeling as frustrated as I have been with strangely slow to set tomato plants. I've got 26 plants in warm Martinez in Contra Costa County and only about 5 small tomatoes (no cherry plants). In Oakland, excluding one cherry plant, germination has been quite a bit better, but still very low compared to the last several years. Last year I had my first ripe Contra Costa tomato on July 8th - not even close to that this year. Maybe the two high heat events unusually early in the year screwed up tomatoes setting.

How is tomato set for the rest of you Northern Californians?

Slow start, I usually plant April 1. We had at leat 15 days at or below 35 in April.
Roller coaster weather, high winds, smoke. It can only get better.

I planted some plants in March and put alot of effort into saving them this spring and it paid of with enough fruit for a few people on 4th of July.
