Largely from information from this group, I diagnosed blossum drop from too
much nitrogen.

Note that there was only one plant (beefsteak) , in a crowded (in a WELL 
garden box) set of 5, including an early girl which has already produced > 5 
ripe fruit.
The other four plants were setting fruit.  I think this one was hit too hard 

Anyway, because this is a > 2 foot raised bed that is so well drained, I 
flushed a lot
of water by this plant for about 15 mintues on three days.  It started 
setting fruit in one to two weeks.

Clearly this is not a controlled trial, but I thought there might be interest 
in this.
