Comments about Product: I got these gloves for my husband to use instead of his heavy gardening gloves and he loves them! He can grasp the logs more firmly and the long length prevents him from burns and scratches. Thanks!
Comments about Product: Have had a wood burning stove for nine years. Decided to try these gloves because I was always
searing my upper arms putting wood into hot stove.
No problems with that since I purchased these gloves. They are excellent. Buying them as gifts for friends with stoves, and purchased second pair for myself.
Comments about Product: I wear these gloves everytime I work with my firewood. Whether it's splitting, hauling, carrying, or loading up the stove with wood. These gloves are thick and flexible. They also prevent your hands from getting hot when reloading an active fire however, even though the sleeves are long, it would be benefitial if they were another four inches longer. That would give complete protection for your arms from flames. The longer length would not be cumbersome because the material is very soft and flexible. I've had these for five months now and I really can't believe how I got along without them for so long. These are a GREAT INVESTMENT in your personal safety. Isn't that priceless?

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!
