That was, more land was planted with sweet potatoes, and the yield of sweet potatoes was higher. The number of people willing to raise pigs would also increase.
In this way, her bacon and sausage workshop would not have to worry about the supply of pigs.
Prince Anyang nodded. He admired Lin Xiaoyue’s open-mindedness.
“However, we can’t let the commoners plant all the sweet potatoes.” Lin Xiaoyue suddenly said.
Prince Anyang immediately looked at Lin Xiaoyue.
Lin Xiaoyue smiled.
“Your Highness, don’t forget that I still have a chili factory.”
“Other than chili sauce and bean paste, spicy cabbage requires a large amount of cabbage as raw materials.”
“If we let the commoners grow all the sweet potatoes, I won’t have enough cabbages.”
“Haha.” Prince Anyang was amused.
“That’s simple. Let the few manors around Daishi Village focus on planting cabbage, with little or no sweet potatoes. Let them plant sweet potatoes in other places!” He said.
Lin Xiaoyue raised her glass.
“In that case, thank you, Your Highness!”
“Haha, what’s there to thank me for? If Qingshi Town really develops, 1 should be the one thanking you!” As Prince Anyang spoke, he clinked glasses with Lin Xiaoyue.
Lin Xiaoyue chatted with Prince Anyang for a while and suggested that Head Fang work with him to implement the plan.
In the afternoon, the sun was scorching hot.
Prince Anyang rested for half a day in the manor.
In the evening, he went to the fields to take a look before leaving with Liang Yu.
Lin Xiaoyue personally sent him off. She only heaved a sigh of relief when the carriage was far away.
The home of sweet potatoes…New business was coming…
“Miss-” Head Fang saw that Lin Xiaoyue was a little tired and called out to her.
“I’m fine. I’ll leave this matter to you.” Lin Xiaoyue said.
“Your Highness has the heart to do something. If this matter is completed, it will be of great help to us. We have to put in more effort.”
“Yes, Miss!” Head Fang hurriedly bowed.
“Also, have you calculated the soldiers’ wages for the past six months?” Lin Xiaoyue turned around and looked at Head Fang.
Head Fang hesitated for a moment.
Back then, not long after the Nangong Army came to Qingshi Town, she suggested that they should pay the soldiers.
However, because she did not have much savings at that time, she set the time to be half a year later.
The time had come.
He thought that Miss would not remember, but who knew that she would ask about it.
“Almost done.” Head Fang bowed to Lin Xiaoyue.
Half a year’s salary for 5,000 soldiers was not a small sum.
It was only in this half a year that her business developed smoothly. All the projects under her were making money.
Otherwise, she would not be able to pay the salaries of the Nangong Army and the expansion of her business.
“Once the calculations are done, distribute them. In addition, in the future, the soldiers’ wages would be the same as other employees, and they would be paid monthly. All the benefits are the same as the other employees.” Lin Xiaoyue said.
Head Fang hesitated again.
“Yes.” Then, he bowed.
Previously, he was worried that the soldiers would not be used to farming after returning from the border and might even cause trouble.
But now, it seemed that they got used to it very well. Even he himself was starting to like his current life.
Perhaps it was a good decision to follow the Master and Mistress’ wishes and let the Nangong Army retire.
“Yes.” Lin Xiaoyue responded and left.
The next day.
The wages were paid.
The Nangong Army began to line up at the entrance of each manor’s accountant’s office to receive their wages for the past six months.
Everyone’s wages were calculated from the day they arrived at Qingshi Town, even if they hadn’t really started working at that time.
Food and lodging were free in the manor, and they even gave out clothes and daily necessities. Although the daily salary was not high, after half a year, the accumulated salary was actually quite a lot.
According to the type of work, the highest salary was around 10 taels, while the lowest was around 6 taels.
This was the first time many of the Nangong Army soldiers had received so much money. Their eyes lit up as they held the money.
Some people even made an appointment to go to town for a drink.
However, the manor immediately issued an announcement, telling everyone not to go out for the time being. The Master and Mistress would come over to talk to everyone in the next few days.
The Nangong Army was excited as they waited.
In the next few days, Li Xiao and Lin Xiaoyue appeared in various manors.
It was necessary to announce that the business was going well and thank everyone for their efforts. At the same time, they also expressed a positive outlook for the future.
The current Nangong Army was different from half a year ago. Each and every one of them was much calmer than before. Many people were used to their current life and were no longer as resistant to returning to seclusion as before..
