Comments about Product: The first one I received was defective at the solder joints. Customer Service was excellent. They paid return shipping and did a "hand pick" (which means inspection) before the replacement shipped out that next day. The second one was fine. I think it is sooo cute and my husband thinks it is cool.
Comments about Product: I have 2 of these next to my swing on the porch and they are great. Good table for a book and glass to sit on while your are outdoors. Great conversation piece and so cute......Love mine.
Comments about Product: I just love my Frog !!! Everyone that comes onto my porch makes a comment. He is certainly the talk of my new sunroom. Now I just have to think of a name for him as he is certainly "one of the family" now.
Comments about Product: Just received this for use on our screened-in porch. I thought I would primarily use it as a side table but my 4 small kids fight over it every night as the place to sit for dinner. It is sturdy enough for them to sit on and small enough to slide under the coffee table for storage. Plus his little head looks cute sticking out from under the table.

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!
