Slow allotment gardening in the life of a busy family
Tuesday, 1 February 2011
Pronounced 'glor', as in 'for'. Scots for mud of a particularly sticky kind. If it hasn't been frosty and too hard to dig, it's been sodden and squelchy with glaur. So not a lot happening on our plot, and life is busy elsewhere into the bargain. With none of the sorting of seed packets and first sowings that I'm seeing on other blogs at the moment, I'll just have to point out my cherished green Hunter wellies. They're quite a faded green now, in fact a trendy 1950's formica green. They date from 1981, and were a serious investment for a student. But Aberdeen that year had deep snow and low temperatures to rival those of this winter, and they were my daily footwear on the snowy cobbled streets of Old Aberdeen.
