Comments about Product: I got these pumpkin holders because I enjoy having halloween decorations with absolutely no time to carve pumpkins! I use them as pictured and they look wonderful inside the house. I wish I could get another set for the front door, but I am afraid that they will disappear. The only downside to these beautiful pumpkin holders is that not all pumpkins will fit in them, and you have to take it to the store with you to find the perfect fit and look. For this reason, I am giving them a 4 star rather than a 5.
Comments about Product: These holders are incredibly cute. I know they were probably meant for just Halloween, but with that Owl design they can really be used any time, especially during the fall and winter seasons.
Comments about Product: These pumpkin holders fit small and medium pumpkins. The Owls are made of iron and stand out a little more than the other type. Helps to keep your pumpkins off of the ground so they last longer!
Comments about Product: These cute pumpkin holders add charm & character to my brick front stoop & steps, mixed in with other pumpkins and decorative squashes that are not in holders. I love their facial expressions! I also have the holders that are spiders. Not just any old pumpkin will fit into these rings, though, so take them along when you go pumpkin shopping, as I did. I was surprised by how many otherwise beautiful pumpkins would not fit into the holders!
Deer and/or chipmunks habitually eat displayed produce in my neighborhood, so I have everything draped in deer netting. These holders have helped a lot because their feet help anchor the net! It's been almost 3 weeks and (touch wood!) so far there's been no assault on the display; meanwhile the next door neighbor's pumpkins have already been eaten beyond recognition!
Just be careful, especially if you're using these holders indoors, that the feet do not scratch whatever surface they're on. The finish is not rough, but they are metal, with sharp owl feet.
Because these holders are a little tricky to fit, I graded them at 4 stars (Good Stuff) rather than 5 (Perfect). However, this is not meant to imply there's anything wrong with them. I really love them!
Comments about Product: We are looking forward to using our Owl Pumpkin Holders this fall. We liked them so much that we bought a 2nd set as a gift. Be careful unpacking them though--there are some sharp points on these pumpkin holders.

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!
