With temperatures in the upper 80’s this week, garden work is in full swing.
Getting ready for the spring plantings with a shipment of ollas that were delivered on Monday. This will be our third season integrating the ancient, yet very efficient, clay pot irrigation method in the urban farm.
In fact, it’s been surprisingly successful experiment. Plants are noticeably healthier and their growing season extending when planted near the submerged ollas. A fellow gardener/urban homesteader also had similar observations.
He sent us photos (shown above) of the ollas in his urban patio container garden and said that the broccoli which were planted with the ollas were noticeably bigger and healthier. Other gardeners and olla users have had similar stories and growing experiences.
Anyone have similar observations? Care to share?
