On September 13, 2021, General Secretary Xi Jinping went to Gaoxigou Village, Yinzhou Street, Mizhi County, Yulin City, Shaanxi Province for inspection and investigation. When passing through a field, the general secretary temporarily stopped the car, walked into the field, observed the growth of millet, millet, and corn, and started talking with the villagers who were working in the field.
Gao Zhizhou, a villager in Gaoxigou Village, was weeding in the field, but he never expected to meet the general secretary in the field.
“What do you grow at home? Are you busy?” the general secretary asked with concern.
“It’s too busy, the old couple will do it together.” Gao Zhizhou said hurriedly.
“Can the crops be watered?” “Is there any interplanted beans in the ground?” The general secretary asked very carefully.
“There is no interplanting this year, because of the drought, we can’t plant it.” Gao Zhizhou replied.
Recalling the scene at that time, Gao Zhizhou said with emotion: “The general secretary can understand our northern Shaanxi dialect. He understands the life of farmers!”
“Soup in the morning, bran at noon, and the moon in the bowl at night.” Once upon a time, Gaoxigou Village, located 20 kilometers north of Mizhi County, had barren land and nine droughts in ten years. Memories of a meal.
Decades have passed. Under the leadership of the Party, Gaoxigou Village has managed the soil erosion, the ditch and mao have put on green clothes, and the villagers have also ushered in a good day.
Talking about their current life, the villagers told the general secretary: “The days are good, and now you can eat white noodles, rice, and meat.” General Secretary Xi Jinping said: “It is not that white noodles and pork are rarely eaten now, but sometimes whole grains are eaten. Eat well.”
“The vicissitudes of life, the villagers have a very solid life today.” The general secretary said with emotion.
In autumn, the Loess Plateau is full of greenery. Villager Ji Qinye recalled that the sun was very good that afternoon. The villagers were wearing straw hats. The general secretary did not wear straw hats.
General Secretary Xi Jinping talked with fellow villagers about the special foods in northern Shaanxi: “The hard glutinous rice dumplings make yellow rice buns, and the soft glutinous rice dumplings make oily hulan and oil cakes.”
The general secretary held up the heavy ears of grain and observed the growth. The corn stalks next to it had corn cobs, and the general secretary reached out and squeezed them to see if the corn was ripe.
“The general secretary also said that our Mizhi millet is very good, and there is a layer of oil on the porridge, so I can’t drink enough.” Ji Qinye said happily.
