Maybe something cheaper than reverse osmosis is the distillation in a basin like Seymour did.

See the picture (quickly found on a search)

There are 2 species of sunflower that are quite salt tolerant.  Can't think of their names right now.  It's been over 30 years since I was a sunflower breeder.  And I wasn't working on salt tolerance.

Salsola soda, or agretti, is another one for the list.
