A lost ring found 16 years later in the garden. Have to read this!

One Carrot Gold of the Day: A Swedish woman who lost her wedding ring 16 years ago was shocked to find it attached to a carrot in her vegetable garden.

Lena Pĺhlsson lost her priceless homemade ring after she set it on the kitchen counter to avoid misplacing it while doing some Christmas baking.

She had already resigned to a life without it when, suddenly, it resurfaced on the taproot of a small carrot she had yanked out of her garden and was about to throw away.

“Our daughter Anna was at home at the time and she heard an almighty scream from the garden,” Lena’s husband Ola told The Local.

Ola and Lena have a few theories as to how the ring ended up straddling a vegetable. ”We thought maybe it had fallen in to the compostable food bin,” Ola said. “Perhaps it ended up in compost that was spread over the vegetable patch later.”

The far more fun hypothesis however involves the family ewe. “Maybe it had been eaten by the sheep and then ended up in the manure that we then spread over the vegetable patch.”

Either way, Lena is ecstatic, but she can’t quite slip on her ring just yet. To put it gently, her ring finger is no longer the baby carrot it was in 1995.

I'm not young enough to know everything.

That's cute. I wish I could find things like that again especially some of my childhood toys.
