Here we are growing polebeans.  Planting green beans (non-bush) climbing beans benefits from building a simple green beattrellis or bean teepee.  Doesn't have to be fancy or expensive. 

You can see I didn't spend money on anything but the twine.  And that twine purchase has lasted 4-5 years so far.

Decided this year to plant climbing/pole beans so they'd grow up a 'pole bean teepee'. Of course, mine looks more like a green bean tent (six legs and a crossbar) than a pole bean teepee.

The number of pears on the tree in July is quite impressive.  This is the second year in a row the pears have been very heavily fruitful.  (It seems that apple trees alternate years, which is why thinning of fruit is a common spring practice for those trees.)

But for growing pear varieties such as this one, it might not be necessary to thin the fruit in spring like those apple trees.
