Tomatoes seem to be growing VERY slowly

Hi everyone,

I have German Johnsons and Amish paste. All the plants look healthy. Many--but not all--have tomatoes forming. But they seem to be growing very slowly. I water religiously, and it's been very, very hot here. Only one tomato looks to be normal size. All others vary, from the size of a golf ball to very small.

Because I saw cutworms, I applied Sevin dust several times--did not shake it all over the plants, but only in the soil around the stem. (I see no cutworms now, and have stopped applying, although I look each day.)

Is it normal for tomatoes to grow so slowly? Should I be concerned?
