Plant Pottery that Works

Ollas this season have been flying off the shelves (virtually speaking)  Good news is that the 1.5 and 1 gallons are back in stock so stock up while supplies last.  What’s even better is we are getting returning customers who are wanting more for their garden and they have nothing but good reviews over using clay pot irrigation in their garden.

Other hot items are the soil blocks, hanging solar food dryers and the canning kits (temporarily out of stock and we’ll be getting another batch at the end of June and just in time for your preservation efforts)

Order $50 and get a chance to win a 3 DVD collection of HOMESTEAD BLESSINGS (one more drawing to go!)

    Anais, I’ve been considering the hanging solar food dryer but it is so humid here (in coastal Florida) that I wonder if it would work for me. Any comment?

    That picture of the ollas is so beautiful to me! It really speaks to my spirit! Thank you for sharing!

    gaiasdaughter, I am also in FL and it is so humid that even the electric dehydrator doesn’t work as well as other areas. A woman at Present Moment Cafe in St. Augustine, FL once told me that they have to dehydrate their raw corn chips for 3 days! to get them dry, and that’s in an electric dehydrator!!

    I also would love to just air dry food. Sadly it would just mold.

    Hi: I’m wondering how the news today about California’s financial situation will affect you. Probably it will make everyone realize how valuable your lifestyle is and you will be busier than ever! Take good care of yourselves. Susan

    I recently picked up the solar food dryer, and by incredible bad luck set it out with some items to dry as we got a run of misty, overcast , 70-80% humidity days and 60-70F weather. Sigh. It still did a fair job under antigonistic conditions — the passage of air in and around is rather complete, and I guess we got “breeze dried” rather than solar dried. I really like the unit, but was impressed that it accomplished anything under those circumstances.

    In fact, I like it a great deal, largely because of the performance but also because of the very fine mesh netting and the that completely surrounds the food, and the extra pieces for any needed repairs that are included.

    It has some idiosyncratic issues with needing to be balanced, and some difficulty with a couple of connectors (for which I have devised a fix and will share here and with the inventor once I have tested it)

    But frankly, there is nothing like it out there, it comes with a self-storage case, and I would love to own a few more . . .

    I am unsure if you would be able to help me, but I live in Las Vegas, NV and I want to start a vegetable garden. I was wondering if the ollas would be a viable option for my garden.
