Service Dates


Get to know each other better by spending several hours weeding, hoeing, picking peas or beans, or digging up carrots. You'll have plenty of time to talk and get bonus points from your parents at the same time. If it gets hot, have a water fight while watering the yard or garden. Once your gardens are weeded, go around the neighborhood weeding other people's gardens for money (for your next date). Cool off with fruit juice slushes under a big tree.
