Growing for gold ... ring on vegetable

A WOMAN who lost her wedding ring 16 years ago has found it — around a carrot growing in her garden.

Lena Paahlsson had taken off the white gold band and put it on the side before a Christmas baking session with her daughters in 1995.

But it vanished and despite a frantic search — even pulling up floorboards — Lena never thought she would see it again. But she was picking carrots when she spotted one with the ring wrapped around it.

She and husband Ola, who live on a farm in northern Sweden, now believe the ring must have fallen into the sink and been mixed with potato peelings that were composted and put on the garden. Lena said: “I had given up hope.”
