Chapter 16 Vegetable Garden
Nevertheless, knowing that the space can evolve, was already enough to make Tang Miao happy!
On the 10th day after entering the space, Tang Miao was surprised to discover that the apples on the first batch of 10 apple trees were all ripe! Every apple was big and red. Tang Miao took a bite and it was crispy, sweet and fragrant. Although nowadays, there were many kinds of apples, but Tang Miao has never eaten one that was this delicious.
The flowers he planted before were all in full bloom with the sweet fragrance of flowers. Tang Miao mostly grown ginger lilies. Ginger lilies are abundant in G city. With their snow white flowers like butterflies and graceful posture they are also known as white fringed iris and above all, they have a sweet fragrance. Quiet, beautiful and pleasant to smell. They are Tang Miao’s favorite flower. In the lake, there are lotus leaves and on the field the flowers are gently swaying.

After several day of exploration, Tang Miao had fully confirmed that there are no seasonal and regional differences in this space. It can be seen that the peach trees in his orchard can bear fruits at the same time as apples. The fruits will stop growing automatically after ripening and won’t rot or air dry even if they aren’t picked. After picking, new buds would sprout and new fruits will grow. In addition, the space also has the function of keeping fresh. Tang Miao accidentally noticed that the trees he didn’t plant the day before yesterday didn’t wither until the third day. So it’s not too magical.
At the same time, Tang Miao picked another apple and began to think about planting vegetables. The fruits in the space are so delicious, the vegetables would certainly also be good. The vegetables currently sold in the market don’t feel safe to eat. Surely it would be better for the health to eat more vegetables from the space.
Thinking about it, Tang Miao went to the farmer’s market and brought many vegetable seeds, such as radish, spinach, chinese cabbage, cabbage, potatoes, eggplant, cucumber, leek, chili and so on. Tang Miao also specially brought a whole set of farming tools. First he used a hoe to loosen the black land next to the fruit tree forest. Mental power was very easy to use, but each time he would be really tired after using it for too long. As a result, farm tools were essential. After loosening the land, Tang Miao divided the field into pieces, each of which will be sowed with different seeds. After half a day, Tang Miao’s space has changed again. In the vegetable garden, radish, chinese cabbage and spinach were divided by borders and arranged neatly like tofu blocks.
After three days, all the vegetables were fully grown. Tang Miao, like a real farmer, felt the joy of harvesting. Seeing the branches covered with fruits, green cucumbers, purple eggplants, green leeks and white cabbage on the ground, he felt satisfied.
By now, his space is completely different compared to the beginning: on both sides of the bamboo house, on the right was the large orchard with red apples, yellow bananas, purple grapes, greens and blues..everything one could wish for was here; on the right side of the the stone road, to the right of the flower bed was the vegetable garden with chinese cabbage, lettuce, radish, cabbage, leek, cucumbers and more. In addition there where watermelons, strawberries, hami melons, and so on. The situation was satisfying.
After this period of observation, he already had a basic understanding of the corps in the space. Fruits and the like can ripen in just ten days, vegetables and the such can mature in only three days and even the fish in the lake are as long as chopsticks by now.
Tang Miao cut a dozen ginger lilies in the flower bed. When he came downstairs, he still had a smile on his face. Taking advantage that no one was in the living room, he changed the flowers in the vases in the living and dining room and even replaced all the fruits in the fruit bowl with fruits from the space.

Tang Miao randomly took a glimpse and couldn’t help but be shocked. He saw a picture of a field with cracks about two centimeters wide on the TV. There were a lot of unpleasant news recently. He picked up the remote control and turned off the TV.
