Comments about Product: I liked the look of it in the catalogue. However, when it arrived I was very disappointed. The coating was cheap and peeling off. Also, it wasn't balanced - it would rock from side to side. I returned the product immediately.
Comments about Product: These are great, bought them to replace ones that had the handles that screw in and they kept coming apart. No parts to unscrew with these and they are easy on my arthritic fingers, large enough to grip.

Comments about Product: I bought this tool set for myself;I'm so glad I didn't get it as a gift! the quality is VERY poor- the legs are uneven so it sits tilted, the welding gave way on one of the arms that hold the tools so it sags down and they sent 2 shovels and no poker in the set. What happened to quality control in this company?
My advice...do NOT order this set even though it looks very pretty in the catalog. You'll be disappointed. I'm really surprised it's not taken out of inventory with this quality; it's really unusable. I'm sending it back.
Comments about Product: This tool set is attractive and sturdy, I don't think it will fall apart although some of the tools, the broom in particular look very cheaply-made. The main problem is that not all four legs hit the ground, and this is the second one I've had in my home. It's better than the first where one leg was easily and inch off the ground when the set was stood up level. The second one I just got is maybe only half and inch off and we're trying to live with it.
Comments about Product: We love this hearth tool set. The design is sleek and clean. It is lightweight and takes up minimal space. It gets the job done. Best of all was the price! We saw other tool sets at our local stores that cost far more but were not as well made.

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!
