Comments about Product: The first thing I noticed when I open the box was the superior quality of this pair of sandals. When I picked them up I could not believe how light in weight they are. This feature alone will make them a favorite because I do not like to wear heavy shoes. At the end of the day heavy shoes make me feel like I'm dragging my feet and then I feel extra tired. The colors are natural so they go with just about all of my summer cloths. The rubber soles are an added bonus! No slipping on the floors at the supermarket! Overall I have thoroughly enjoyed wearing my new Hadley Thongs. Easy to slip on, great arch support and super comfortable! I would recommend them to family and friends.
I received a pair of Hadley Thongs from Plow and Hearth to facilitate my review*.

The Olla: A Brief History
Olla (Spanish, pronounced “oh-ya”) jars have been around since ancient times. Made of unglazed ceramic, ollas traditionally have short, narrow necks with wider bodies, and are made in a variety of shapes. They have been used for thousands of years for cooking, storage, and plant irrigation.
When used to irrigate plants, an olla is buried neck-deep in the ground near a plant’s roots, with the opening of the olla extended above the soil so that it can be filled with water periodically. The porous walls of the unglazed pottery allow the water to seep through gradually, constantly and consistently hydrating the plants without overwatering them – and without wasting precious water to evaporation or runoff.
The use of ollas for irrigation was introduced to the American Southwest by Spanish conquistadors during Colonial times, becoming very common among Native American tribes and Hispanic settlers. Though the technique gave way to more modern methods of irrigation some time ago, its superior efficiency, coupled with its simplicity, has caused it to make a comeback. Though the technique has changed little since its introduction, today’s ollas are usually capped off, making them even more water-efficient.
Perfect for home gardens, Ollas are a super-easy, eco-friendly, less time-consuming way to water annuals, perennials, herbs, vegetables and plants of all kinds in dry, sandy soil, very hot or drought-prone areas, raised beds, and even pots, planters and hanging baskets. Fill the olla before you leave on a short vacation to enjoy worry-free watering – and a smaller water bill!
