Or are you not using anything to charge the mass under the umbrella? Also (as has been mentioned), it seems a 1” pipe in a well casing is way too small to provide the air flow needed... does Missoula even get enough sun in mid winter to ‘power’ that?

Any ideas?

Once it simmers over night, I will add more water, and leftover veggies - onion, garlic, carrots, celery. Let it simmer until all the healthy parts have been absorbed into the broth and then strain out anything solid.
We then use the broth like a tea (especially for anyone sick). We also use it instead of water to cook rice, use it as a soup base, use it for gravy instead of water... basically anywhere you would use water and want some extra nutrition and flavor.
I do the same with beef stewing/soup bones.

One pollen grain produces exactly one seed. If 7 grains of pollen land on a flower, you can get at most 7 seeds. To get 500 seeds, at least 500 pollen grains need to land on the flower, and they can have as many different daddies as the bees have been visiting.
Does this mean that if I collected pollen from multiple different heirloom tomatoes and applied it to the same emasculated flower, the seeds in the resulting tomato would be a mix of all of them? As in, rather than doing a bunch of different 1-1 crosses, I could just have one big tomato bukkake and have, most likely, a few seeds of each cross within one fruit.
Am I correct?
