Su Tang had made such a promise to Jiang Hong with the thought that the other party was Luo Xingchen’s enemy anyway, so he was naturally also Su Tang’s enemy. That being the case, it was only a matter of time before one of them dealt with the man. Thus, though it may end up delayed a while, Jiang Hong would definitely be able to take his revenge in the end.
Hearing Su Tang’s request, Luo Xingchen didn’t have any opinions. “Of course I can do that, it’s no trouble. That man is really too much of a villain. Even putting aside him shutting down their shop and robbing the recipes that family depended on to survive, he also didn’t let even such a small child off.”
Speaking of this topic, Luo Xingchen was also very angry about it. In her mind, even thieves should have their own bottom line. For someone to be so ruthless to an innocent and unrelated child, they really couldn’t even be called human. Luo Xingchen had seen that little girl today, and she was so thin and weak after being hit by that man, it was just too pitiful.
“It’s good that you know. You should also pay more attention to the matter of the doctor.” Su Tang also felt Jiang Nian was very pitiful after getting along with her for these past few days. After all, Jiang Nian was really a very cute and clever little girl, so it was that much more distressing to see her forced to lay down in bed all day.
“En. I’ll be staying in Qinghe Town for a while this time. But it’s already nearly the end of the month, shouldn’t we start moving soon?” The matter of Jiang Hong’s family was just a small interlude, now that it was over Luo Xingchen immediately turned the topic back to the most important matter: Su Tang’s business.
“Well, I’ve already arranged the farms before you arrived, and I also just so happened to stumble over Jiang Hong and his family while doing that. I’ll let them start preparing the seeds and have my people start raising the seedlings in a few days. Once the seedlings are done, I’ll ship them to the farms for planting. What about you, have you started setting up the workshop yet?”
Compared with other things, her business was always the most important. Therefore, Su Tang instantly dove into the topic and even asked about the arrangements on the Luo family’s side.
Now that the personal farms that belonged to her and Luo Xingchen had been arranged, the seeds for those farms would come from her space, and each farm would just raise their own seedlings and plant them directly.
Meanwhile, for the chili peppers and tomatoes she planned to give to the Luo family, she was going to use the mature plants from her space to produce seeds and then let the Su family raise those seeds into seedlings, which would then be passed to the Luo family to plant.
By doing it this way, the plants grown by the Luo family would be second generation and would taste a bit worse than the plants grown directly from seeds taken from the space. This would result in a subtle difference between the two tastes, which would in turn lead to two production lines, one for high-end and one for ordinary products.
Luo Xingchen replied, “My family has already begun to make some moves. Unfortunately, the recipe you gave us for the two sauces is not very complicated, so…”
Speaking of this topic, Luo Xingchen felt very depressed. After all, in theory, this entire sauce business was supposed to be left to her, but her father had been meddling a lot with his “opinions”, or even direct orders, leaving her as the passive party despite supposedly being in charge.
Su Tang originally had thought of a simple machine from the modern era that she was familiar with that could crush tomatoes and chili peppers to make sauces and planned to take it out. In her mind, since she was cooperating with the Luo family anyway she could take it out to help them set up their workshop.
Unexpectedly, the other party had already begun to act on their own without waiting for her input at all. She curled her lips and said, “What a pity, there’s a tool I was intending to bring out from them to use, but since they don’t want to cooperate with us, let’s just use it in our own workshop instead.”
When Luo Xingchen heard Su Tang say this, her eyes lit up. “What good thing do you have? Show me quickly.”
Ever since she had met Su Tang, she had seen Su Tang bringing out various new and interesting things one after another, so she was very curious what kind of thing her friend could bring out this time.
“It hasn’t been built yet actually. However, I’ve decided to set up our workshop in Qingshui Town soon, and it will be able to process all of the output from our five farms. When the times come, I will personally design and preside over the construction of the whole workshop, so you don’t have to worry about a thing.”
It wasn’t like Luo Xingchen had just blindly given her money for nothing, she owned 30% of their joint business, which made them partners, so Su Tang patiently explained her upcoming plans to her friend.
“Will one workshop be enough?” Luo Xingchen was a little worried. As far as she knew, a lot of tomatoes and chili peppers could be grown per mu, so she was uncertain if one processing workshop could handle the output from five farms.
