    For these strange people that click on this thread without first reading the story:
    Picking Up a General to Plow the Fields

    c3: How does she know what currency is used in her new life? Even if she just guessed it based on her knowledge of history, how would she know how much it was worth in that specific village or how much money the Yang family had to have any hope of setting a reasonable price?

    c5: I don't understand why she was upset that the MC was intelligent. Who would want a stupid daughter-in-law who was easily tricked? Are they trying to breed stupidity and gullibility into their bloodline?

    c10: Murdering them in their sleep seems like a good plan. They could steal the food back without murdering them (maybe), but they'd definitely just come and steal it again, probably after roughing up the kids. Well, assuming that they haven't sold the rice already. I'm not sure why they wouldn't have sold it though. They don't need that much rice and I assume that they have habits to support or things they'd like to buy. Still, if the kids are their only living relatives, they could take the house and everything in it, which might be even better. Though they would run the risk of picking up whatever outstanding debts those two losers have while they were at it.

    @holyshin could you link this to the series page?

    Anyone have any idea when the 12th chapter will be edited? There's too much clutter to read it at the moment.

    They didn't actually decide on a price before she started counting. How is she supposed to know if she actually got the discount? And how much difference could such a small discount make on what is probably a fairly small order to begin with? Unless the price is at least 50 of the smallest currency, it wouldn't make any difference at all.

    Wouldn't the aunt have the legal right to beat them? I could be wrong, since I'm not super familiar with ancient China, but wasn't some degree of child abuse considered normal?

    The society they live in is strangely 'pure.' My friends have said worse things to me in the course of normal conversation. They didn't mean it of course, but still, that level of insult isn't something that any of them would fear repeating. Well, as long as it wasn't to their child or something, though some wouldn't mind even then.

    I wonder if she painted the chickens or something like that ;)
    Possible, but its also possible that it just doesn't grow around there. Its not native to China after all. It was brought in by Westerners if I'm remembering correctly.

    Do you guys think the horrible aunt and uncle played a role in the death of the MC's mother?

    I don't know if this novel lacks support or wasn't noticed by readers. All I want to say is this is a rather great read. If you like romance then I would recommend this. The male protagonist(general) was not yet mention at the recent chapters but hope that the translator could release the chapters fast. Btw I like the sense of humor of this novel.
