I think it's just too cold for pollinating insects. Maybe just wait a while.

I'm not Kate, but I grow a lot of tomatoes. They look to me as follows 1) the yellow/red striped one looks like 'Tigerella'. The very grooved one below and to the left of it looks like 'Marmande'. The large grooved one below it looks like 'Coure di Bue'. The little oval yellow one in back looks like 'Ildi'. The round orange cherry one in front of Ildi looks like 'Orange Berry'. The normal looking red one in back could be any medium red tomato - Shirley, etc. The string of red round cherry ones n bottom right looks like 'Gardeners Delight' but there are others that produce similar trusses. For variety I always grow a green one like 'Green Zebra', and also a larger yellow one, none better than 'Golden Sunrise'. Have fun and experiment!
