Plowing Bee seeds crops for harvest

Seeded field to be harvested on Labor Day weekend

COLFAX - The Palouse Empire Threshing Association had a successful annual Plowing Bee last weekend.

The old fashioned plowing bee took place at 10 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday April 20-21, in the field across from the Palouse Empire Fairgrounds on state Highway 26.

Co-organizer Eric Reiber said the first day was great due to good weather. "We didn't finish the seeding, but everything else got done," he said of the second day. "The seed bed got prepared and that was the main thing."

Reiber said this year's event had a decent turnout from teamsters and teams, with thirteen teams showing up.
