After some googling: Roman medicine spoons? The suspense is killing me! And what about Raven's picture, do we have a solution already? This is great fun.

Cosmetic spoons? Used for different powders, oils, and ointments. I have seen some from ancient Egypt that look similar in shape, but with different embellishments.

Peters picture could be some kind of specialty plane with changeable blades. The ones in the picture could be used for making grooves, maybe? Ravens tools could be used to weave belts? or make some kind of cordage?

Old thread, but I have to add geckos. They make nice pets and seem to love cockroaches.

I would test it and probably eat it, but not sell it. I can asses the risk for myself, which I think is very low, but I wouldn't make this decision for others.

With pickled vegetables, which have a reliably low pH, you have quite a margin for error. I would eat them, as long as the seal holds. Having said that, I would try to use them up fast and would surely not sell them.

The way I understand air pruning pots, just poking holes will not be enough. The pots have a special shape to lead the roots to those holes, otherwise they would just run in circles and bypass the openings. I would strongly discourage you to use styrofoam cups anyway. Too much ick.

The plums are very photogenic...

Well that is an understatement!
I just had to look at this picture for some minutes. Absolutely stunning! Almost hypnotic.
You can add any alcaline resistant pigment to whitewash. As long as it makes up only a small fraction of the wash, it should not interfere with its properties. I just tried "Whitewash pigment" in google and got some interesting looking hits on the first page. I would probably try some finely ground charcoal, if i wanted to make my own pigment. Another way is to stain the finnished wall after whitewashing. This looks less homogenous, a bit more like watercolour, which can be really nice.
