Comments about Product: I have purchased some of these in the past such as an angel or some animal, something with a non-Christmas theme, and given them to persons who have recently lost a loved one. I tell them that somewhere a tree has been planted in their loved ones' memory. Some have placed the ornament in a special place in their home as a memorial to their loved one. I also give them to the secretarial staff who work in my office. We don't exchange gifts in the office, but I feel like I am doing some good while showing them I appreciate what they do for me.
Comments about Product: I have many of the pewter ornaments sold by Plow and Hearth. They are very beautiful! I like that they are nice to look at on both the front and back sides. I also appreciated the fact that for every ornament I have purchased, a tree was planted somewhere. I leave all my pewter ornaments out on display (on a little metal "tree") all year long, since they are too special to pack away after Christmas!
Comments about Product: I've been getting the ornaments for family for about 4/5 years now, & They all love them. And they along with myself love the idea that a tree gets planted when they get an ornament. They should, if it can be done, put the year on them to make it Alittle bit more Spiecal. We never had a problem with our orders. Love The Catalog just wish I had ALOT MORE $$ to order EVERYTHING I WANT :):):) Thank You for putting a " Big Ole Smile" on my face when the catalog comes. Just What The Doctor Ordered.
Comments about Product: I've been getting these Pewter Ornaments for my grandson for a couple years now. They are cute, and sturdy, for an annual gift ornament for a young child. I like the animal/toy theme of them, without them being "commercial". And I like that by purchasing them, a tree is planted by the National Forest Foundation, who is helping in Plow and Hearth's Campaign To Reforest America. And you can't beat the price, especially when combined with the coupon that they send me every year. They are just a bit smaller than I think they will be every year, but that is OK...not too small; I mean, I keep ordering them every year!!
Comments about Product: I used them last year as gifts for the teachers at my preschool and for a friend. They all loved them and the meaning behind them . I totally agree.. So I am doing the same thing this year with the same yet different ornaments, as part of their Christmas gifts. Everything is wonderful about them!
Comments about Product: I purchased the Lamppost pewter ornament. It is very detailed and the perfect size. To be able to make a small, unique purchase with a benefit of supporting a cause allows me to contribute to a cause and participate in a work secret Santa without going broke. The shipping for this small,lightweight item is pricey though.
Want to step in for Santa? We happen to know this is high on _______'s Christmas list!
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!
