Comments about Product: Birds and Squirrels are both enjoying it. Squirrels figured out how to hang below the opening, swing up so they didn't put weight on the feeder perch which would shut off the opening, and scoop out a lot of seed. But the feeder has many great features ..sturdy, easy to fill, etc.
Comments about Product: This truly baffles the neighborhood squirrels. The birds love it. :) I do feed the squirrels separately; but now the birds get a chance to eat without the squirrels scarfing all the food in record time. This was a Christmas Gift from my Son and I couldn't be happier with it.
Comments about Product: We have a wildlife sanctuary acre yard. It his is the only truly squirrel-proof feeder we have ever found. After spending $100's on every type of feeder out there, this is the best one we have found. Highly recommend.
Comments about Product: We've had one of these for several years and it is beyond excellent! It works exactly as advertised. We've lost nothing to squirrels nor can they get to the inner part to destroy it. The feeder has stayed in great condition. Ours was an earlier model and I think this must be even better (re the ventilation they mention). This was a gift from our daughter. I don't think I'd be likely to buy it for myself at this price--but we are so delighted to have it, and so are our birds! It would make a wonderful Christmas or birthday gift for the bird-lover you love!
Comments about Product: I had bought a similar style feeder at a 'big box" home improvement store for half the price but the squirrels eventually figured out they could use the platform at the bottom to hold their weight and manipulate the spring loaded wire mesh enough to get to the food. The feeder was also flimsy. You get what you pay for! However, this excellent Plow & Hearth feeder is another story. It doesn't have a platform on the bottom so there is nothing for the squirrel to stand on. It is also very sturdy. I have had the feeder for 2 months and it works great. I have seen squirrels jump on it and give it their best shot but they never succeed. The birds love it. Iam very pleased with this feeder so it gets a 5 stars rating from me.

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!
