Okra

What makes the flower rot on okra and the little okra under the blossom turns brown and falls off? I have seen this every year, but it usually only happens to a few here and there. This year it seems to be happening a lot, of course it's still early and it may get better, but it seems like there may be some deficiency, you know like blossom end rot on tomatoes is caused by a lack of calcium. Any ideas?
Thanks,
DR

If i was a vegtable doctor I would say too much rain.. If it was a dry spell I'd say too much sunshine. As a matter a fact I doubt if the truth is available.. Just plant again in another location and time untill you find out the real cause.Maybe Dead Carp or Salmoneye knows,,I just hated to leave you hangin here alone.
