Goldenrod Homestead Financial Boost!

Hey Everyone, Well I have some good news. It’s bittersweet, but good. I recently sold off a big piece of technology from art school to gain a good amount of money for the garden/homestead this coming year. I have another being sold off later next week I believe. So far that means I’ve got just…
