Plant Advent wheat on December 4
According to a Provençal tradition, grains of wheat (or lentils) are planted on the feast of St. Barbara. Line a bowl with cotton balls and moisten the seeds regularly. As the days go by, beautiful green shoots will appear, symbols of life and fertility—an image of the new life that the Savior comes to give us.
