If you read Ollas Part 1, then you already know about ollas and that I made my own. While it was definitely a cheap option (about $5 per olla), I didn't enjoy the process and wasn't getting fabulous results in my garden with my homemade ollas. For the last year, I have been keeping up with the olla online market.

Okay, now here is the story of how I got the large GrowOya ollas for $23 each shipped.
