The Happy Farm of the Fallen Noble Daughter ~A Slow Remote Wasteland Life Exploration with My Dearest~ – Chapter 30

Chapter 30: Edible Flower Magic

―One week later.

Diana picked a new pink flower and gently put it in her mouth.

This one had a sharp spiciness, reminiscent of wasabi. It would probably taste delicious as a topping for salads. 

However. . .

“I want something that can be preserved as food.”

The previous candy didn’t receive much praise from the villagers.

This time, she tried making candy again. She soaked only the pink flowers in the candy with a taste similar to mint. 

Candy with blue and pink flowers.

It was very cute, but it would be meaningless if it didn’t sell.

“If I want to serve it in salads, I need to start a café or something. . .”

Just then, Leon returned after finishing the morning farm work.

“Oh, you made candy again?”

“Yes. But there’s something different about it.”

“Hmm. What is it?”

“These flowers shouldn’t be trapped in candy. Based on the taste, they would go well with salads or vinegar.”

“But if we want to sell it, it should be something that can be preserved.”

“Do you think so too, Leon?”

At that moment. . .

From a distance, the sound of a rattling carriage could be heard. Leon leaned out of the window.

“. . .Ah, it’s Gustav-sama!”

Again, what could be the reason?

“He must have come to give feedback on the candy to Onee-sama.”

However, as soon as Gustav got off the carriage, he held up something like a metal plate towards them.

“Diana! Take a look at this. Do you notice anything?”

On the metal plate, there were evenly spaced indentations the size of coins. Diana immediately noticed.

“Hmm? Could it be candy molds. . .?”

“That’s right. Diana, make candy with those blue flowers and give me as much as you can!”

“What’s the matter all of a sudden?”

“What do you mean. . .Ilsa was so delighted! I want to see that expression again.”

Diana broke into a cold sweat, and Leon shook his head in exasperation.

“He’s hopeless, as expected.”

“He doesn’t seem to understand the essence of things. . .”

Leon looked up at the sky.

“The weather is nice. Shall we talk outside today?”

“Oh, that sounds nice. Let’s bring the table outside.”

They moved the dining set back and forth to serve tea to Gustav. Gustav watched them and seemed to be thinking about something.

“. . .Let me help too.”

At Gustav’s words, Diana and Leon exchanged surprised glances.

The three of them each carried a chair and enjoyed tea in the open air with oak cups.

“. . .It feels nostalgic. We used to drink tea like this in the garden of the Heinz mansion.”

Upon Diana’s words, Gustav widened his eyes.

“. . .That’s news to me.”

“Is that so? Don’t you go outside with my sister to have tea like this?”

“I never thought about it. I wish Ilsa had told me. Also. . .”

“Yes?”

“Don’t you drink from the dish set I brought before? Did you already sell it?”

“No, it’s not like that. . .I just thought that such a high-end dish set wouldn’t match the rural scenery.”

“I see, I understand.”

Gustav gazed at Diana’s small flower bed swaying in the wind.

“Oh, those are the edible flowers you’re growing.”

Diana looked up. It was the first time she heard that term.

“Edible flowers?”

“Hmm? Surprising, you’ve been growing them without knowing that word?”

“Yes. My father named them 〝edible flowers〟.”

Gustav snorted.

“Your father was lacking in that sense. Let me teach you. Edible flowers, it’s a term for flowers that can be eaten. There’s a country far in the East that has a culture of eating flowers. They seem to care about the appearance of their meals.”

“Oh, I see. They have advanced culture.”

“Many vendors tried to import them in a blooming state, but it didn’t work out well. This is just speculation, but your father probably had no choice but to import the seeds. It should have been quite a challenge to make the seeds germinate in a different climate, but for some reason, they bloomed on this hill. That’s why you’re using them.”

“Yes. My father said, ‘These flowers will change the world.’”

“Oh, that’s an exaggeration, but it certainly has the potential to change the dining table. They are visually beautiful.”

Gustav looked at the candy with pink flowers and sighed.

“I’m not foolish enough to think that giving candy will win my wife’s favor.”

The farmer couple’s hearts skipped a beat.

“However, I’ve found something that makes me feel hesitant, and I can’t help but act strangely excited.”

Diana gradually found Gustav endearing. Are there not sad couples in the world who love so much but are not reciprocated, or are indifferent even when loved?

“. . .Anyway, there’s no point in keeping them without eating. Today, it would be nice to bring back plenty of flower candies.”

“I’m sorry.”

“By the way, may I use this iron plate?”

“Oh, that custom-made item was made for you. Please use it.”

“Thank you. I’ll start making it right away.”

Diana took the iron plate and hurriedly returned to the shed. Leon asked his brother-in-law.

“Gustav-sama, have you ever made something for Ilsa-sama?”

“Me? I’m just an amateur, Ilsa wouldn’t be pleased with something I made.”

“Well. . .You seem to be thinking of something difficult, but it doesn’t have to be something special. For example, you could pick flowers over there――.”

“Flowers, huh.”

Gustav remembered his wife, who always looked at wreaths.

“Come to think of it, I’ve never even picked flowers.”

“It would be nice to bring back plenty. That back mountain is not suitable for farming, but it’s a treasure trove of wildflowers and flowers.”

“Hmm. I’ll go take a look.”

Inside the shed, Diana diligently worked on making candies.

She coated the molds with oil and poured melted candy one after another.

“Wow, amazing. I can make candies so efficiently!”

The blue and pink flower candies sparkled in the daylight, waiting to cool and harden.
