"Weed Dating"

The rural equivalent of "speed dating," this activity was developed to allow single people with at least a modicum of interest in gardening to meet others interested in outdoor activities.
The women were given a crash course in how to identify a weed versus a vegetable or fruit, and then instructed to pass that information along to the men, who rotated from each bed every three minutes.

Participating farms in Idaho, Vermont, Michigan, Wisconsin, Illinois, and Ohio also provide numbered mason jars into which persons too shy to speak can leave messages for potential partners.

They should call that dating system "BedHoppers" (as in flower bed).

Probably for the best to teach only the women -- it does force communication with each new partner, since us dopes surely won't remember which are weeds and which are crops when faced with a curvy thing.
