Comments about Product: High quality, printed nicely and just so happy with this product. I have everal other ones from Plow and Hearth that were copper and not painted they are so nice. Store away in the winter and they will last forever.
Comments about Product: My husband loved this whirligig. Frogs were a joke between his siblings growing up and this addition to our garden is perfect. Well made, easy to assemble and very whimsical. Thinking about getting a few more as summer hostess gifts to my gardening friends!
Comments about Product: Bought this as a gift for my daughter- right now it's in my garden... hopefully, she'll have a garden someday to place it in + she's out of state, so will not even see it until she visits in July. I'll take care of it for her 'til she's ready for it :) Was easy to assemble, is SUPER cute, works great, bought on sale, so price was right!!
Comments about Product: I intended that the whirligig would be placed by the mailbox to identify my daughter's house that is among many in a subdivision but my daughter decided to put it in her garden where she can see it every day.
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!
