Carrying a Hoe to Cultivate


Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

Xia Yi had transmigrated, with a cultivation system into a farming novel. Orz

Mission: Becoming an apprentice in the Qi Shan Sect to obtain a mythical beast.

With his hoe on his shoulder, Xia Yi gazed at the large area of farmland in front of him, he almost blacked out: How am I going to complete cultivation missions in a farming novel?

System: It’s fine. There is always a fix to a problem…

And so, Xia Yi was forced to go between the two worlds, farmed a bit here, cultivated a bit there.

Although the rubbish missions were torturing him to death, there was always a loyal doggie beside him…

Xia Yi: Cultivating is so hard.

Gu Wen Zhu: I’ll teach you.

Xia Yi: Farming is so exhausting.

Gu Wen Zhu: I’ll help.

Xia Yi: I don’t want to have a child.

Gu Wen Zhu: Yes, you want to.

As the worlds mixed up, the characters in the cultivation novel frequently appeared beside him.

The whole thing was a mess, traveling between two worlds. Claiming to be relatives with people, arranging a marriage, becoming sworn brothers with others…

Why not let his dog at home join the party too!

When I started reading this novel, I dropped it at around chapter 15, but later I picked it up again. I fill skipping those chapters, I finally reached the point where it ignited my interest. Now, my mind has totally changed about it. Here is my final thoughts on this novel 😊

Loved everything about it, especially the fact that MC kept his modern life mindset and attitude throughout the whole story. I loved this consistency of his character the most. Nice plot, nice MC and ML, nice side characters, mwuah... more>> 😙👌 (chef kiss) !

I would like to thanks the translator for the hard work as well ❤️❤️❤️ <<less

Fun, fun story to read! There is a lot of fourth wall breaking happening between the MC and his system. Main system had a bug which mixed up the two novels MC is reading. So after he transmigrated we got an ML that is of a different brainwave, the perpetually MIA System Tech that got roped in a pyramid scam and the much more unreliable System that had one heck of a character. Freaking hilarious.

I don't get why other people are expecting this to be purely "farming" story when it's... more>> OBVIOUS in the title that it's not. Yes, it's THAT fantasy kungfu "cultivate" term LOL. Rating 5s to help bump it up.

TBH, I'd say don't take the plot too seriously. It's fun. It is a cross between farming and cultivation system, took out all the boring xianxia and farming details and put together all the hilarious parts. It may be short but those who were looking for laughs will thoroughly enjoy this.

One example:

ML was able to cross over the cultivation world to follow MC and somehow he managed to get one of those kickass sentient wuxia weapon... but in a shape of a HOE.


My favourite part:

A demon elder that wanted to depose the demon king (father in law) was spitting angry lines but was drowned out by the loud peppa pig playing (in MC's brain) so that the unborn baby won't get upset, according to the System. :))

Peppa pig. In the middle of a climactic fight. I'm choking. <<less

Finished reading it with MTL.

Honestly, with the rating, I didn't want to read it, but my curiosity won, so read it, even with MTL.

And I dont regret it. AT ALL

Yes. As other said, farming is not the focus here. So those who expect it to be "farming novel" will be disappointed.

Buuttttt, personally I REALLY LIKE THIS.

No dogblood drama.

Short story (69 chapter).

There is plot.

Some comedic that mafe me laugh

Note: BEWARE of the tragic past.

Ahh, and for translator, you always did great translation. Will read the translation when it's completed.

at first it will be about farming then there will be d cute interaction/misubderatandings first of MC and ML haha. There's the twist in the story transmigrating vice versa of worlds (read it !)

And knowing more about MC and ML past. ML is so caring and loving to the MC ;_; MC is also straightforward and he's loveable for me.

Very quick and will touch your heartstrings especially about familial affection &care

This is good, , minus 1 ⭐ cause there is scenes where I don't like the MC, , 🤭

... more>>

Beware of...

Domestic violence!!!


I like the idea of the plot, , it's interesting to know MC and ML's real identity and past self, , tho if author deepened how they write their past (oc angst) I would reluctantly give it 5 ⭐ 🥺


One of the past is when Wang Lan killed and dried from his blood to make medicine.

If author more exaggerate and write it longer maybe I can catch the sad part, but it's just few sentences which say...

"it's hurts... I can't speak.. I want to see Ze Yuan ge..."

... the summaries at least.

Also where Ze Yuan see Wang Lan's corpse. Chinese usually use dramatic description to convey the feelings but it's more like skipped by the author.

The story is still good tho...


I read the MTL and it's so easy to read except for the few part like where they explain how the world got overlapped 🤔

I enjoy this story that I finish this in one day, , where I have exam in the next day, , 😭😭 <<less

This author comes up with so many novel ideas and interesting approaches to stories that it's always fun to read and see what they will come up with next, As usual, the story is tightly plotted and everything has a purpose. Characters are well developed and even side characters who may show up only briefly distinct personalities. The dialog has a nice pop to it. The serious/fluff/comedy moments are well balanced. And the story is just as long as it needs to be. These are all consistently good features in... more>> Little Baldy's writing.

Things that I especially liked in this story.

  1. Our MC, the shou, is not a shy guy. When he decides he wants his man he goes for it. The gong is the more reserved and shy of them, but always goes along. The author even found a way to make the MC's first estrus really funny!
  2. The system has a personality. Not just, functional/non-functional, but an actual personality and we hear about other systems that work with it. It also does more than just show up for missions.

    It even comes back to visit MC after the missions are all done, just as a friend.

  3. World building, especially in cultivation novels and ancient novels can some times bog down the plot, but this story has both and manages to give just enough detail and scenery to build things out without slowing the story.
This is a fun and exciting read. Well worth a try! <<less

Great novel! I can only recommend uwu


... more>>

basically MC has read two different novels (farming and cultivation) at the same time and transmigrates into the farming one. Apparently there was a problem, bc the system that he got was specialized in cultivation, so yeah they System management really has some problem haha

anyway so instead of cultivating to clear the tasks, he has to farm. After he arrived in this world, he was picked up by ML, bc apparently ogMC was looking for his aunt, who is also MLs stepmother? So yeah, ML saved MC and basically gave him a place to live. Whenever MC praised him and stuff, he’s flush and also be unhappy. Why? Bc of course this is a world with Gers 👁👁 you know, the men that can get pregnant. Yeah so basically ML thinks MC is really shameless to so openly flirt with him. (Though MC is just behaving normally, since he didn’t have the mentality of a Ger)
Stuff happen and I guess ML really figured out that MC never had these thoughts. They care for each other, MC is touched to be cared for and then they fall in love :)

Oh, and as I’ve said, they System always have some problems. MC was transmigrated into the wrong world, and later more and more cultivators from the other world transmigrated over, though they also get to be sent back. (Therese ppl always look for MC since he knows what going on and helps them) to all the other villagers, these ppl seem to be a little crazy haha since MC also sometimes transmigrates into the other world, he’ll disappear for a time... so he tol ML a little about it and he pretended to believe it. But he just thought MC is being brainwashed and the others are all swindlers haha

oh and he probably has another identity👀 he probably has a past, that he has forgotten, like that was originally from the cultivation world (highly possible, since the cultivators all seem to recognize him)




I‘ll drop this one... but it’s only bc of personal preference ^^‘ I don’t like seeing side cps, and I’m guessing there will be at least one...


this Qi Zhou disciple and one of the farmer guys, Er Niu ah...


can’t bear to read something with side cps \ (QAQ) /

I greatly enjoyed this novel. It was funny and entertaining and I really can't understand some of the bad reviews.

I especially enjoyed how MC and ML where really close and didn't hide it at all. The romance was fairly early but it was very respectful. There was no forceful stuff at all. It was fluffy and had quite a few twists but don't worry it's not complicated.

I would totally recommend this novel especially if you are looking for something fluffy and a bit more calm :)

I have got to be reading something different than what the other reviewers have been. I must be, because I'm dropping this at around chapter 20-something and I'm not even sure how I managed to push myself that far.

I read one comment that said it was better than the other farming novel that randomly added cultivation, mpreg, court intrigue and business into a slice of life novel. But let me be clear, that novel (the name of which I have forgotten) was so SO much more interesting than this mess.

That... more>> novel kept you engaged even if it was solely because of the drama. It was interesting. This? Bro, there's literally mention of cultivation from the very jump. It would have been fine if it was just in passing, but he crosses worlds and then some random elder crosses over there and I'm sure that's not even going to be the end of it.

Then, what farming? The MC probably does maybe one real work load the rest is handled by the ml, who does everything else. The MC is in charge of breathing and he barely does that right. One minute he's b*tching and complaining about the perverted world and how he hates it and he'll never comply with it. Then the next he's in love with the ml. The ml, on the other hand was stuffy and quiet and initially kept his distance but then somehow became smiley and gentle, loving everything about the MC. The author just threw sh*t at the wall and went with whatever stuck.

I honestly just don't get it. I tried to stick with it but the translation was lackluster and the story bored me. I tried to get to the childcare part cause if I'm honest that's the only part I like about mpreg shit, but I couldn't stand it.

don't read this. Like, if you're someone that can't turn your brain off while reading, or need at least a modicum of logic within a novel. Run. <<less

Sir Wang with his bedpan; the hero we need but don’t deserve 😩 😂


But I gotta admit that other than the summary that interested me, the number of chapters hooked me in bcz... why not lol it’s a number that can still make me giggle like chipmunk in front of the holy grail of nuts (get it? No? Okay... I’ll end now)

The pluses were more than the slump after the half way mark where the details were sparse and speeded up a bit too much so this story still deserves a high score. <<less

Just so so. Ok read, not too bad with some highlights.

The first 13/14 chapters dragged on and on to the point that I wondered if there really is any cultivation part. You really have to hold on a while until it gets better.

Unfortunately the MC is often annoying. He is working "hard" but basically doing nothing. ML is doing everything from farming to cooking, sewing and all the other things. MC is there for the drama, being unreasonable to a crazy degree, looking cute and carrying a system. Though he... more>> has his good and fun moments too. The background story wasn't bad but somewhat rushed at times.

All in all it's not a special story but it's ok to read once. <<less

So far, this is a cute transmigration novel where the MC is from a modern world sent to one where there are gers, females and males. He has a system that has screwed up his transmigration, plays games and wants to be called a ger itself. It has comedy, and as of right now, a little bit of mystery; is the ML actually from the other world or maybe even the original world? Who knows?! Can't wait to find out!

Heartwarming and engaging. I love how dedicated our ML is to our endearing MC. I also appreciate how the author made sure that there were no loose ends before ending the story. Considering how this novel ended with 69 chapters, I'm more than satisfied.

This is a comedic novel about a modern guy named Xia Yi who gets transmigrated into a farming world. But there’s a bug in the system - he was supposed to transmigrate to a cultivation world! The error causes him to end up straddling these two different worlds. And things get more complicated from there.

The plot is really interesting - the author keeps you guessing and there’s an over-arching mystery - and the patient and doting ML is very sweet to the hot-tempered and straightforward MC. The MC is really... more>> clueless in the beginning as he is in a world of gers and he himself is a ger without knowing what a ger actually is. *Cue the ML to take care of him.*

For me personally, the only complicated part of the story (where I took notes to avoid confusion) was the names of the cultivation world elders because each has a different title in addition to their name. Not too many elders but I thought it was still helpful to take notes.

Overall, it’s a short and entertaining read! Definitely recommend it. <<less

Pretty good, very fluffy but also humorous throughout. The story did feel a bit fast, like a condensed or summarized story as many elements seemed to have progressed super quickly.

Despite it being a short story, it is very jam-packed with content. In a way, I wish the author had taken more time to slow down crucial scenes or development.

Nevertheless, I have a great impression of this author and greatly enjoyed their other works as well.

This one is like their other stuff, quirky, intentionally breaking cliches, and just a fun time... more>> overall.

Pretty good translation. <<less

Love this one! Would I recommend it to others? Yes, surely! Will I reread? Probably, maybe just the ending and the extra but anyways.

I would recommend this to certain type of people bcs mind you, the MC is brain-dead no thinking just happy-go-lucky person. And that is exactly why I like it lmao. Irl he would be so f*cking annoying bcs he’s always crying and dependant onto ML, but for fiction? That’s my cup over there.

It was quite boring for the first few chapters but the MC and his system... more>> interaction is what makes me stay. Also, even if it is boring I wouldn’t drop it bcs I’m waiting for the mpreg (><”)

It was a bit pity that the story doesn’t have that much extra bcs I would love to hear more about their daily lives with their big family TT

anyways, stan kirin!! /Srs <<less

This is simply a parody novel with a touch of drama and plot xD. The plot is not its strong point but I think the touch of mystery unraveling is done well. For me, it's a novel that is made for the laughs and fluffs. So I don't feel disatisfied with the not-so perfect things and just treat it as something to pass the time and enjoy.

Imo, MC is not that annoying. Yes, he cried a lot and sometimes having a bit of unreasonable side, but it was understandable. I... more>> think that's what makes him cute and funny. And remember, this is somewhat of a parody novel xD.


I'd like to specially mention the pregnancy episode. I think MC's reaction is a realistic representation of what a real life men's possible reaction knowing that they could give birth as a man in a strange world. Plus, pregnancy accompanies high and unstable moods, so given the stress and difficulties, it was a reasonable reaction. Also, he did reflect on it after some time and accepted his situation. So it was okay and I don't find him unlikeable.


Overall, it was a good read. <<less

This is a cute transmigration novel with a mix of a farming and cultivation world.

I didn’t really like the ML at first because he was always thinking ... more>>

that MC had ulterior motives with getting close to him, I get his mindset because he lives in like the old times but still, that kinda put me off

but after maybe chapter 10 or so I grew to like him as well

Sometimes I feel like the MC is pretty unreasonable but it’s still an okay level

Plus points for the plot twist! I didn’t think this novel would have one, it was kinda predictable but the plot twist is still good <<less

I love farming novels, but only if they are decently done.


For one, I found the MC to be ridiculously annoying. Yes, I like silly characters, but not s*upid one.

... more>> Just like a previous review, the MC basically seem like a freeloader. He doesn’t seem to have an important existence in the story aside from being a MC with a system.

You would expect a more interesting MC and plot because of the title and summary, but nope. It is disappointing.

I will still continue reading it because it SEEMS to be getting better, but this novel will never be something I would actively recommend to anyone. It will not be something I would actively follow reading too.

I might just wait for it to be completely translated before continuing my read. <<less
