Comments about Product: Not that it was recommended but I decided to put the frog canoe in my pond where it cruises around most happily. Yes, it is rusting some. I belatedly spray it with Rustoleum in hopes of arresting the process and would have been better off doing so at the start. But the boat and couple are so charming that I don't care if they sink or swim!
Comments about Product: This is truly a fun piece to find in the garden. It is an eye-catcher. As with any metal piece, I would recommend two things: 1. drill some small hole in the bottom to allow for water drainage(if it is in a place where rain may collect. 2. Spray with a clear UV protected polyurethane to prevent rusting and/or fading of colors
Comments about Product: I love this canoe w/frogs. I have a bridge named after my grandson so I got blue aquarium rocks to look like water & added this canoe & it was perfect! Good size on the canoe too, not skimpy at all.

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!
