a couple of experiments are showing some promise. the batch of native amaranth I'm attempting to brine pickle hasn't spoiled, and if my taste buds don't deceive me, is starting to taste a little sour.

the other is a simple water distillation setup. I placed a coffee cup in the center of a pot, filled the pot partway with nonpotable water, and inverted the lid so that the lid handle acts as the drip point for the condensate. collected maybe a little less than a teaspoon with only the afternoon sun. up on the roof it may get twice as much. and there's room for hundreds of these.
