I’ve been selling Ollas for a few months now. I would guess that there are about a dozen gardeners here in Portland that are using Ollas to irrigate their veggie beds.
So I’ve been asking people to send me photos of their gardens. It’s been so much fun to see where folks have “planted” their Ollas. And it’s been even more fun to see that the Ollas have been providing consistent irrigation during an incredible spell of hot, dry weather. Here’s a photo from Monica Maggio, the owner and head gardener at Core Fruit Institute. As you can see, Monica is harvesting Swiss Chard and other greens from what she describes as a “maintenance free” planting bed. Yay!
