Comments about Product: I purchased the first little red truck for an annual holiday decoration exchange party. It was a smash hit; so unique and cute, an item everyone wanted! I purchased greenery, and holiday figures at a local craft store, my husband fashioned a shelf inside the cab for the "passenger and driver" and the truck looked great decked out in its finery. The figures and greenery are removable so the truck can change with the seasons; a pot of tulips in the bed of the truck in spring; red, white and blue for Fourth of July, mini pumpkins in the fall, etc. Decorate as you see fit and as your imagination moves you.
I liked the truck so much I bought one for myself. The photo of the decorated truck was the front of our Christmas card this year.
Comments about Product: I was disappointed in the color. In the catalog, it was a soft, faded red. The truck I received was way too dark. Also, the truck in the catalog had little headlights which were not on the one I received. I may send it back...just not loving it! May look better with a plant.

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!
