We got Debbie a new laptop as she is taking classes to get a teaching degree and needs a new machine. So I have been working on getting it set up here at the DQ. I have determined that I don't like Windows 8 so far. I have managed to load firefox, avg antivirus (after blowing mcafee off the system). Now I need to load the special browser so that she can take tests on the ODU site as she is going to school online.
I got taken to Red Lobster for a great father's day lunch, I actually got filled up and didn't get desert, maybe later.

The beans had right much lambs quarters weed growing in the upper row so I went out with a basket and picked a mess of greens before the pulling started.
I eventually got the beans weeded as well as the squash. Used some bug spray on the beans as the Mexican bean beetles are flying around, I didn't see any eggs or larvae so they must be the first ones flying in so now is the time to put a hurting on them. That is about the only thing that I spray for as they will wipe out a bean crop in just a few days.
I almost forgot to mention that I planted lots of field corn this year and I noticed that some of it is not growing as well as neighboring areas. It suddenly dawned on me yesterday that the poor performing areas correspond to where I had grown tomatoes last year. You can just about see where a row of tomatoes were by looking at the shorter corn. I have never heard not to plant corn after tomatoes but it is so obvious this year since I planted so much corn and it happened the same in two different gardens so there must be something to it though I have no idea what the cause is.

One day the ground will dry and I will start pulling weeds again.

It is supposed to rain until tomorrow evening so I have a couple days off from most work. Still have to cut calf food in the rain but that will be the worst of it. I am in town buying groceries.

I saw a fawn yesterday and it was about as big as a baby goat only a little more sure on it's feet.
Looks like rain this afternoon so I came out to get more chicken feed.

This is the gray water and water from the roof pipe.
My buddy Tom from Winchester was visiting for the weekend so we made a run to Home Depot and got part to install a clean out access tube into the pipe. I will work on that tomorrow as it is supposed to be a dry day.
This is Carrie's birthday so we came over to DQ for ice cream and internet.
