Fabulous Tea Storage Cabinet
Comments about Product:
I have been searching for a solution to store my variety of loose teas. My cabinet was overflowing, and I couldn't reach nor see what was in it. I saw found this gem after seeing a CD curio cabinet in the catalog. That prompted me to search the e-store and I found this piece. It fits ideally next to my kitchen counter and I placed an electric tea kettle and tea pot on top. Now it is a tidy, single spot for my morning brew.

Love this beautiful chest...
Comments about Product:
Originally I bought this chest for CD storage. The drawers are just a wee bit too small for CDs. Although that was a bit of a disappointment, the chest is so nice, I decided to keep it anyway. It's perfect for storing all of those little things that clutter up the house... would be great for office supplies, jewelry, sewing/craft supplies, etc. The wrought iron stand makes it easy to clean under, and I love that the drawers are finished in different colors. On the whole, I would recommend this chest as a beautiful piece of functional furniture.

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!

How it Works:

Water is pulled directly through the terra-cotta!
