    Planting vetches (gulbiena)

    Planting vetches (gulbiena)

    As part of the Christmas preparations, the children learnt how to plant the vetches (ġulbiena). In Malta it is a tradition to sow vetches (ġulbiena) on cotton buds in flat pans five weeks before Christmas. These are left in dark corners until the seeds produce white grass-like shoots. The pans with the fully-grown shoots are then used to decorate the crib or the statue of Baby Jesus.
