Other than more than ten strong men in his family, he had also invited more than ten strong men.

They had just received a call from Boss Liu saying that they needed 20,000 catties of their watermelons.

Therefore, they had yet to go to the field to pick watermelons.

Shi Jiahao said to his aunt, “Grandma, Aunt said that our watermelons are not for sale.”

“Huh?” Her aunt didn’t react.

Shi Jiahao said anxiously, “Grandma, Aunt said not to sell our watermelons.
Aunt said that after she brushed her teeth and washed her face, she would come down and tell us not to sell watermelons.”

No matter how good he was at talking, he was only three or four years old.

He would say whatever Gu Qingming instructed him.

Hearing Shi Jiahao’s words, everyone looked at Shi Lichun in unison.

The villager, Shi Chunming, smiled and said, “Your niece asked Hao Hao to say that he’s not selling these watermelons anymore and that he shouldn’t pick the watermelons in the field.”

Second Uncle and Third Uncle looked at their eldest brother and asked in confusion, “Brother, did Ming’er really say that?”

Shi Lichun shook his head and said, “I don’t know.
That’s how Hao Hao came to pass the message.
But, in a moment, Ming’er will come down.”

Her aunt thought for a moment and said, “Then I’ll go take a look.”

With that, he turned around and went upstairs to look for Gu Qingming.

She wanted to ask about this.

20,000 catties of watermelons was not a small matter.

They had hired someone to work again.
It was better to work early now when the weather was not hot.

Once it got too hot, there was a high chance of heatstroke from work.
Especially when it came to heavy work like picking watermelons.

“Grandma, I’ll go with you!” Shi Jiahao shouted happily from behind.

Her aunt had just gone up to the first floor when she bumped into Gu Qingming at the staircase.

Gu Qingming knew what was going on as soon as she saw her aunt.

She immediately said, “Aunt, I saw Uncle and the others picking out the frames downstairs.
Are they selling watermelons today?”

Her aunt nodded and said, “That’s right.
Boss Liu, who just received the watermelon, said that he wanted 20,000 catties.”

“What’s the acquisition price?” Gu Qingming and her aunt asked as they walked.

She had only heard it from the window just now.
Now, she had confirmed it with her aunt.

Her aunt sighed softly and said, “This year’s watermelon harvest is good, but the weather is not good this year and it can’t be sold at a good price.
This Boss Liu came to collect our watermelons.
At first, he agreed on 50 cents per catty, but in less than five minutes, he cut the price to 45 cents.
If we sell them for 50 cents, he will collect 10,000 catties.
If we sell them for 45 cents, he will collect 20,000 catties.”

Eldest Aunt was not satisfied with this price either, but watermelons in the fields did not wait for anyone.

After Gu Qingming understood the general situation, she said directly, “Aunt, I have an idea.
I have a friend who is in the fruit business.
However, her family’s fruits are all sold to middle and high-end consumers.
The quality of her fruits must good.
However, the price of her fruits would be more expensive than ordinary fruits.”

When her aunt heard this, her eyes lit up and she looked excited.
She asked, “Ming’er, do you mean that she can come and collect our watermelons?”

Gu Qingming said, “Aunt, our watermelons have met the mid-to high-end requirements in terms of quality.
Besides, our watermelons have never been tainted with pesticides or applied with farm fertilizer.
They would meet the quality requirements of green organic products.”

Her aunt was just an ordinary farmer’s wife and did not know anything about green or organic products.
However, when she heard Gu Qingming’s words, her heart skipped a beat.

She still asked worriedly, “Ming’er, are our watermelons really that good? Is your friend willing to come over?”
