Sweden, Weird

Swedish woman loses wedding ring in 1995, finds it on a carrot in 2011

A Swedish woman has found her wedding ring on a carrot growing in her garden, 16 years after the ring vanished. Lena Paahlsson from Mora, in central Sweden, was pulling up carrots recently when she discovered the ring.

Paahlsson believes that the ring fell off when she was peeling vegetables in the mid 90s, after which it might have become mixed with peel scraps that were used for compost. The ring then sat in the garden for more than a decade before a carrot happened to start growin through it.

The couple had originally searched the entire house for the ring, even pulling up floorboards. They now plan to have the white-gold band, set with seven small diamonds, adjusted so that it fits again and can be worn.
