I planted: tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini, yellow squash, bell pepper and egg plant. The plants are getting pretty big but they're not producing any vegetables. The flower spouts then dies a couple of days later. I used vigiro plant food when I first planted and one watering with miracle grow several weeks later, bigger plants still no veggies. Does anyone have any idea if there's anything I can do?

What you are describing is a classic case of "blossom drop", often caused by excess nitrogen fertilizers. Another cause is temeperature extremes, for example, if night time temps fall below 55 or daytime temps get above 90 pollination can't occur.
