|Some folks start wheat seeds growing on this day, in celebration of Saint Barbara. If the grain is growing well by Christmas, then the coming year's crop will be a good one.
Try your own take on this custom by starting some heathy greens for your Yule table today. Broccoli, radishes, and beets are all good options for growing microgreens indoors. Or, if you have the equipment, try sprouting some slow-starting seeds instead. Whatever you decide to grow, ask it to bring you luck and prosperity in the coming year-your "good harvest." Serve the microgreens or sprouts as part of your holiday meal.
