Vegetables or Weeds
After a while, he realized what he was thinking. He gritted his teeth and thought, ‘I’m definitely blind. Wasn’t it miserable enough to be harmed by Madam Ye in my previous life?’
Ye Muyu was naturally unaware of Chu Heng’s internal struggle.
As soon as she came out of the kitchen, Chu Ziluo, who was drinking rice wine and egg water in the living room, ran out. “Mother, where are you going?”
“I’ll go pick some spring onions and ginger.” Ye Muyu searched through the memories of the two crops and knew that they existed in this era, so she started to use them.
Although she did not have much time to cook, her culinary skills were pretty good. Whenever she had the time, she would try to cook.
Whether it was Chinese food, Western food, or snacks, as long as she was interested, she had basically made them.
“I’ll go with you,” Chu Ziluo quickly said.
“Are you done eating?” Ye Muyu asked.”
“Yes, Mother. I’m very full now. If I don’t work, I won’t be able to eat for a while.”
“Ah, mother, I don’t want to eat more. I just… I just want to help you with your work.” As soon as she said that, Chu Ziluo realized that she had said something wrong and explained frantically.
Her eyes showed fear again, worried that Ye Muyu would be angry.
Ye Muyu’s expression did not change. She said gently, “Yes, mother knows. Coincidentally, I also need your help.”
“That rice wine and egg water is originally a dessert before dinner. Even if you don’t eat it, you’ll be hungry soon.” This dish was a dessert from in ordinary families in her previous life. Of course, the real ordinary family would not call it dessert. It was purely for those who came back from work to quench their thirst. It was better than tea to fill their stomachs.
Seeing that Ye Muyu was not angry, Chu Ziluo smiled and followed her out of the courtyard.
The land near the Chu family’s courtyard was all under Chu Heng’s name.
Therefore, it was convenient to plant vegetables around the house.
The villagers were hired to plant the vegetables, but the elder brother of the Chu family, Chu Lin, was the one who carried the water and fertilized the vegetables.
For things like weeding, it was up to Madam Ye to do it herself. However, Madam Ye was not even willing to do housework previously, so the harvest of the vegetables in the fields was not good. There were too many weeds, affecting the harvest.
If it was just a family of four, it would be enough.
Ye Muyu walked to her own vegetable field. Looking at the field overgrown with weeds, she suspected that it was a field of weeds and not a vegetable field.
“Mother, the vegetables are growing well today.”
“There are also spring onions. Look, there’s a huge patch of spring onions here.” Chu Ziluo walked straight in and pulled out a bunch of onions, smiling brightly.
Ye Muyu thought that if it was any other kind of food, it would not even bear fruit.
She walked over and took the spring onions.
Ye Muyu went to the vegetable field next to the spring onion field after looking at it.
It was the middle of April, and there were basically only all kinds of vegetables. Therefore, there were many weeds in the field, but it did not affect the overall situation.
However, starting from May, she had to plant the vegetables that he often ate in summer, such as cucumbers, edamame, eggplants, peppers, carrots, and so on. These could not be overgrown with weeds.
It seemed that she had to clean up this land properly.
She did not want to buy vegetables.
He only had about ten taels of silver at home, so it would not last long.
As for Chu Heng’s ability to earn money, she was not sure. She thought that Chu Heng was already very impressive for being able to pay for his own studies.
A scholar would need to spend at least ten taels a year.
