What’s more romantic than rich dark soil with new green sprouts shooting up through the earth? Nothing, if you happen to be a farmer. And what better way to find farmers of the opposite sex who feel the same way you do than to try out “weed dating”. It’s hard for any single to meet someone new, but even more so for farmers who start work at the crack of dawn and often times find themselves still working long after their urban counterparts have called it quits for the day. Weed Dating, which by the way does not involve an illegal substance, was the brainchild of a farm couple back East who felt drawn to help one of their favorite young farm hands find romance. Instead of meeting in bars, as is typical with speed dating, weed dating takes place on farms between rows of sprouting produce. Those participating weed a row with a potential love interest, then move on at the sound of a bell to the next partner. As one young weed dater attested, “It’s better to meet people over a shared interest and even be doing something practical.” Weed dating - where you can get plenty of fresh air, do something productive and perhaps find love all at the same time.
