Saving Yesterday for Tomorrow

Making Hay…

Our workday for 5/31/14 didn’t go 100% as planned, but we did bring in the wheat. A special thanks to Earl Madsen, Jarrod Lancaster, the Haas Family and the Hargrove Family for all the work that had to be done to get the reaper up and running. And an extra thanks to Gene Haas for helping to prove the saying that “There’s no such thing as too much WD40!”

1st Annual Tractor Ride was a success!

Thanks to everyone who came out and participated in the 1st Annual Texas Early Day Tractor and Engine Association Tractor Ride! We had a great time on a beautiful day! A special thanks goes out to Gary Hudgens for letting us use his farm as our Lunch destination. Thanks also go out to Chad Haas for grilling some delicious hamburgers and Clinton Noll for hooking up an old fashioned ice cream maker to his John Deere B and making some great ice cream!

We’re already discussing the plans for next year and hope to make the ride even better. We look forward to seeing you all at the 43rd Annual Texas Early Day Tractor and Engine Association State Show sponsored by Don Ringler Chevrolet and Toyota October 4th, 2014.

The gallery for the show is ready to view and we have a video up on YouTube.

Tree Planting – Workday

The Tree planting workday on 2/22/14 went very well. We had a bunch of help and things went pretty smoothly. All the new trees are planted, we were also able to remove some of the older big trees that were starting to become an issue. Work was done for all the new irrigation, the Bessemer engine had some work done, and the roof of the Ice Cream house got some work and a new coat of paint.

Thanks to everyone that came out and pitched a hand.

Below is a link to the workday gallery and a couple of videos. If you have any photos or video you’d like to add, please send them to tedtea.web@gmail.com

We are still taking donations to cover the cost of the trees. To make a donation please fill out and mail the Tree Donation Form (PDF readerneeded) or for more information on this or other projects, please contact us at:
