Comments about Product: How does this get 5 stars? It was panned by the only previous reviewer. The holes are too large for Niger seed and the openings are too small for almost all birds. Our feeder has been up for over a week and the feeder is almost untouched. A completely worthless product
Comments about Product: I reviewed this once, but since you e-mailed me again I want to make sure folks know that this is not a Thistle Seed Bird Feeder. The mesh is to course for thistle seed and the cage openings too small for using larger seed to attract larger birds. A total loss as a bird feeder.
Comments about Product: I loved the style and the look of this feeder, which is why I bought it; but it certainly did not deter the squirrels from eating most of the seed. What they didn't get from the feeder itself, they threw to the ground and ate. I returned this feeder and exchanged it for another on which seems to be exactly what I was looking for!

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!
