More indoor gutter water collection

I am lining the sill with asphalt flashing to protect the wood and collect condensation and rain water that infiltrates through the glazing layers.

This morning, as the sun started to hit the frosty greenhouse, water started dripping into the gutter.  Even more water comes in during heavy rain.  I will be directing the runoff into the thermal pond, and the gutter will serve as an NFT style hydro system.
