A Swedish woman working in her vegetable garden found her lost wedding ring wrapped around a carrot she had harvested. The ring had been missing since 1995.
According to UPI, Lena Pahlsson lost the ring 16 years ago when she took the ring off and left it on a counter while she was preparing food for the Christmas season.
She and her husband searched the entire family home but to no avail.
All these years later, Pahlsson was harvesting vegetables from her garden when she noticed the ring wrapped around a tiny carrot she had pulled. She initially almost discarded the carrot due to its diminutive size.
The Huffington Post says that her husband has theories of how the ring may have ended up in the garden. He stated:
"We thought maybe it had fallen in to the compostable food bin. Perhaps it ended up in compost that was spread over the vegetable patch later. Maybe it had been eaten by the sheep and then ended up in the manure that we then spread over the vegetable patch."
The couple are happy they found the ring. The Local reports that they are keeping it in a safe place until it can be re-sized for Lena's finger.
