Both our Scarlet Runners and bush beans were abundant with flowers but no fruit has set. We've had bees but no beans. Could it be the heat wave and maybe "heat drop" that has caused the blossoms to fall before being fertilized? I has been in the 30 degree temp. area for close to a month now. Thanks for your info.

Sounds like they were not really fertilized by those bees Bill !! If you still have flowers coming, try fertilizing them yourself with a Q.Tip, put some pollen on from a bean flower and keep on dusting it on the others....if you have the patience that is.
