Comments about Product: Just received this cabinet yesterday, delivery was easy with the "white glove delivery service", the unit itself is beautiful, exactly the style I had been hunting for, 3 minor complaints: The "Honey Pine" is not so honey pine, it does not match any other furniture I have bought that was called honey pine, which is most of what we own, it is more deeper brown, yet light stain, no warm honey tones at all, still nice looking, just not what I was expecting. Also, delivery took a long time (somewhere around 6 weeks) and that was never expressed by the company until I contacted them about when to expect it, lastly, I tried to pay with paypal and even after 2 calls to correct contact info they continued to use my paypal contact info, not the delivery info I provided when I placed my order, which was different and could have posed a large problem had I not been around to receive the phone calls when I did, then because delivery took so long, I was contacted and asked to mail them a check because they could not process the paypal transaction any more (I guess they expire after 7 days, who knew). Overall, I love the cabinet, just going to eventually be looking for a table set to match it because my honey pine set I currently have does not match much at all.

A bit bigger then expected
Comments about Product: It is a beautiful piece of furniture. It appears to be very well made. I am very happy with the purchase. The color was true to the picture. It is a bit more massive in appearance then I thought it would be even after measuring it out. Lots of storage area for a corner piece.

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!
