Comments about Product: I cannot keep the thistle in this feeder very long. The finches and wrens love it! It does not get wet and clump, they can get every seed out and it is easy to refill! I wished I had ordered this one a long time ago, instead of buying cheap feeders that I have spent a ton of money on!!!
Comments about Product: I love watching 8 to 10 Finches in various positions on a thistle bag but the bigger birds would create large holes causing a lot of seed to escape. I saw this feeder and thought it was the solution and so far so good. The feeder is attractive, easy to fill, very well made, and sturdy. The finches seem to enjoy it and even the bigger birds use it. The feeder is a little awkward and seeds fall from the holes when hanging on a shepherds hook unless you have the top lid open, closing the lid after hung. We live in southern Arizona and are hoping that the stainless steel doesn't get too hot. We can also get high winds and the feeder has withstood the wind.
Comments about Product: This is a great thistle feeder....small in size but heavy duty. Raccoons usually destroy our bird feeders, but not this one! The birds love it too....it attracts many colorful birds.

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!
