ress now.

Her aunt picked up a piece of watermelon for Gu Qingming and said, “You must be tired from the journey.
Come, eat a piece of watermelon first.
We planted this watermelon ourselves.
It’s sweet and grainy.
It’s delicious.”

Gu Qingming held the watermelon helplessly.

She had checked online.
Pregnant women had to abstain from watermelons.

She was careful with the child in her womb.

She couldn’t tolerate the loss of her child now.

Grandma was the first to notice Gu Qingming’s expression.
She asked with concern, “Darling, what’s wrong? Are you feeling unwell?”

Gu Qingming looked at the circle of people outside.
Then, she lowered her head and asked softly, “Grandma, can pregnant women eat watermelons?”

Grandma immediately understood Gu Qingming’s concerns.
She smiled and said, “Don’t worry, Ming’er.
We all know about your pregnancy.
We will pay special attention to your diet.
It’s not that pregnant women can’t eat watermelons, but they can’t eat too much.
You can still eat this piece of watermelon.”

Gu Qingming’s fair face could not help but blush, feeling a little embarrassed.

Her grandmother and aunt clearly doted on her so much.
How could they let her eat food that she should abstain from?

She had been too careful.

Her aunt looked at the watermelon in the basin and said with a smile, “This watermelon is the best when chilled in the well.
It’s just that you can’t eat iced watermelons now.”

Gu Qingming took a small bite, and her eyes lit up.

This watermelon was really too delicious.
Just as her aunt had said, this watermelon was sweet, grainy, and juicy.
When she took a bite, the taste filled her entire mouth.
It was delicious and comfortable.

“Delicious, so sweet!” Gu Qingming said sincerely and even gave it a thumbs up.

Grandpa smiled and said, “This watermelon is sweet, right? This was planted by our family.
We’ve never used pesticides or any sweeteners.
We use farm fertilizer and peanut residue.
Everyone who has eaten our watermelon finds them delicious.”

“So, even if our watermelons are more expensive than others’, many vendors are still fighting for them.” Shi Yu smiled and said, “Cousin, if you like them, I’ll pluck them for you every day.”

As soon as he finished speaking, his uncle slapped him on the head and said angrily, “Does your sister want to eat it, or do you want to eat it yourself? Your sister can’t eat too much of it now.”

“Huh?” Shiyu was dumbfounded.

As soon as he said this, he attracted his aunt’s attention again.
“There’s no reason.
If you can’t eat more, you can’t eat more, you silly boy.
You’ll know when you get married.”

“Oh!” Shiyu touched the spot where his parents had slapped him and replied in confusion.

He really did not understand why his cousin could not eat more watermelons.
It would be a pity not to eat more of such sweet watermelons.

When Gu Qingming heard her fourth cousin’s words, she was a little puzzled.
“Sell? Grandma, do we grow a lot of watermelons?”

Grandma nodded.
Your eldest uncle’s family planted ten acres.
Second Uncle planted twelve.
Third Uncle planted less.
Five acres.”

Although Gu Qingming did not understand how many watermelons there were in an acre of land, she knew the area.

When she heard her grandmother’s words, she said in surprise, “You planted so much?”

“Our family doesn’t have much,” Shi Yuxin said excitedly.
“That Dachun family has a lot of plants.
They planted 30 acres of watermelons.”

Gu Qingming was shocked again.

She asked curiously, “How much are these watermelons for?”

Eldest Uncle said, “That depends on the weather.
If it’s hot and there’s no rain, we’ll sell it for a higher price.
80 or 90 cents, more than a dollar.
If it’s cold and it rains all the time, the price will fall to 40 or 50 cents.
One year, the price even fell to 10 or 20 cents, but no one wanted it.
It can only rot in the ground.”

Gu Qingming widened her eyes and said in disbelief, “So cheap?”
