Rebirth to the Eighties to Get Rich - Chapter 152
Chapter 152: Eldest Sister He
In the evening, Su Danhong pushed Renren and Qiqi to the orchard and gave them to Mother Ji to take care of. She went to the neighboring mountain to look for Ji Jianyun.
Mother Ji saw her take the small watering can and knew what she was up to. She agreed to take care of the children without saying another word. That way, Su Danhong did not have to hurry back and could come back with Jianyun later.
Su Danhong smiled to show that she understood.
Ji Jianyun was very busy with the mountain nearby. It’s only 4:30 now. At that moment, it was not too late in the day. He could probably work until 5:30, but he didn’t need to. He only asked Yang Aisen, Xu Jianguo, and Wang Dagang to plant half of the fruit saplings that arrived today, and the remaining half could be planted tomorrow morning.
These three strong men were very efficient. The fruit saplings were moved to the mountain from the village within two days.
If people in the village wanted these fruit saplings to plant on their own, they could come to take them back, but there were not many available. One person could only take two or three at most. Su Jindang sent four good ones to Mother Su. Plus, it was free. People in the village took it with smiles since it was such a good bargain.
If they planted some in their own backyard, it should grow tall. If it grew well, maybe they could harvest some fruits for themselves?
The newly transported fruit saplings were very good. Ji Jianyun and Lao Qin personally checked them, and Lao Qin was also as busy as him for the next few days. Lao Qin was able to get rid of some saplings. Ji Jianyun gave him two half grown roosters to take back and nourish himself. Lao Qin didn’t accept it and said that he was being too courteous. They were brothers, so shouldn’t they help?
Besides, it’s not hard work to transport the fruit saplings. There was also Wang Dagang, Yang Aisen and others there. They were not tired at all.
Ji Jianyun smiled, and let him say no. If he tried to give him the roosters again, he would consider them strangers.
Now that things were becoming stable, they had to plant the fruit trees as soon as possible.
This time, there was a mix of trees. As long as they could grow the trees in this region, he had planted some.
The cherry trees were the most widely planted. Cherries sold well and at good prices. So this time, he planted more cherry trees. Two fifths of the whole mountain were planted with cherry trees.
The other trees were random. Anyway, it wasn’t hard selling his fruit. Once it was transported, it would be sold out quickly. Customers would only ask him why he didn’t carry it more. They didn’t say that he had too much fruit and couldn’t sell it.
Therefore, he did not need to consider the problems that other fruit farmers had to consider.
And this year, he also had an idea. What if he had bought a store in the market over at the college town?
But if he bought a shop, who would manage it? This kind of thing must be handed over to a trustworthy person.
Ji Jianyun frowned. He also thought about this problem. His sister, Yunyun, was the best candidate, but he was a little disappointed with his sister. He did not feel at ease giving it to her.
So he held back on the idea and didn’t talk about it. It was something he was going to take another look into in the future.
Ji Jianyun continued to work with his men. Around that time, he saw his wife coming.
“Wife, why are you here?” Ji Jianyun questioned with a smile.
“I came to see how everything is growing?” Su Danhong joked with a smile.
Ji Jianyun saw the watering can in her hand and understood. “Everything is pretty good now. Let me take you on a walk. Those cherry trees look very good to me.”
“Okay.” Su Danhong said hello to Yang Aisen, Xu Jianguo, Wang Dagang and Uncle Ji. Then she followed Ji Jianyun.
The couple naturally kept their little secret.
While watering the fruit trees, Su Danhong said, “Jianyun, once our orchard is established, there will be more fruits in the future. Have you ever thought about sales?”
“When I go to the college town, it will definitely sell,” Ji Jianyun said.
“You can’t always run a stall,” Su Danhong said.
“I want to go to the college town and buy a shop to sell our goods exclusively. However, I can’t find a suitable person to manage it,” said Ji Jianyun, shaking his head.
Su Danhong smiled and said, “I have a good candidate.”
“Who?” Ji Jianyun looked at her. ·̩̩̥͙＊*•̩̩͙✩•̩̩͙*˚ ꜱᴜᴘᴘᴏʀᴛ ᴛʜᴇ ᴛʀᴀɴꜱʟᴀᴛᴏʀ ᴀɴᴅ ʀᴇᴀᴅ ᴏɴ ꜰᴏxᴀʜᴏʟɪᴄ.ᴄᴏᴍ ˚*•̩̩͙✩•̩̩͙*˚＊·̩̩̥͙
“Remember the first time I sent you clothes?” Su Danhong asked shyly.
“Yes.” Ji Jianyun looked at her funny and knew she was embarrassed.
His wife didn’t know much before, but that was a thing of the past. She had learned her lesson and straightened herself out since that time she tried to hang herself after Hou Wazi ate the omelet. It was in the past now and didn’t need to be brought up.
They had been married for three years, and it was only after he came back that she sent him something for the first time: clothes.
“The cloth I bought was from the department store. I didn’t know much about cloth when I went in for the first time. Sister He taught me. She also taught me to knit sweaters,” she said.
Ji Jianyun remembered something and asked, “The sister He who asked sister Hong to bring over some clothes last time?”
“Yes.” Su Danhong nodded.
Sister He’s full name was He Zhaodi. She used to work in a general store. However, those had been failing in recent years as private corporations gradually sprung up. Elder sister He had been working for many years, and she was soon to be laid off.
Sister He needed to bring in some income. She had two sons in middle school and one daughter in elementary school. She had a huge burden on her.
Her husband worked in the county town. Before, they both had jobs and they had a good life. She almost didn’t have a job, and her family would basically depend on her husband.
Sister He was a good worker. At the department stores, didn’t the sales people look down on other people? But when Su Danhong went in, Sister He was very friendly. She not only took her to buy cloth, but also taught her to knit sweaters.
This was why sister He was a good choice. With Su Danhong’s belief about friendship, she went to talk to sister He every time she went to town. Last year, when the fruits were ripe, she also brought her some.
Today, Su Danhong also went to the department store to look for sister He, but sister He wasn’t there. She brought a lot of strawberries to the girl who gave a tour to sister Hong.
When Su Danhong gave birth to Renren and Qiqi, sister He knew that her family had a chicken farm, so there was no shortage of food. She didn’t give them food. Instead, she gave several pieces of children’s clothes, which were very good.
Although she wasn’t Renren’s godmother like sister Hong, she still went out of her way to send stuff.
“Sister He has a family to take care of. Won’t it be inconvenient for her?” Ji Jianyun was thinking about it, but still hesitated.
