Comments about Product: My wife has been happily wearing Acorn socks and slippers for years, so when it was time to get her a new pair of slippers, I didn't hesitate to order through Plow & Hearth. The Drew Mules are not a style she'd worn before, unfortunately, and they didn't cooperate with the (apparently eccentric) shape of her feet. The size Large were long enough but too narrow. The size XL were wide enough but too long. Perhaps Acorn will consider more sizing permutations in the future? Meanwhile, at least Plow & Hearth makes returns and exchanges a hassle-free experience. Anyone whose feet are of more orthodox design would undoubtedly enjoy the Drew Mules.
Comments about Product: I have never found a more perfect slipper! After wearing them a few times, they have conformed to my footbed and are SO comfortable. Warm enough that I don't have to wear socks with them. Would love another pair of them if they would go on sale!!!
Comments about Product: First impression out of the box: gorgeous. well made. Tried them on and they are tight across the arch, will need breaking in. Walked across my kitchen floor, and black skuffs everywhere! Oh, have I got scrubbing to do! What poor quality rubber soles! Bummer.

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!
