Carrots are good for you! Lena Paahlsson from Sweden was preparing a Christmas meal in 1995 when she lost her wedding ring. Her and her family looked everywhere, even pulling up the kitchen floor, trying to find the ring. All their efforts failed and Lena had to face the fact that her wedding band, a ring she had designed herself, was lost and gone forever. Fast forward to 2012 and Lena, doing a bit of gardening, pulled up a carrot. Imagine her shock and surprise when she looked closer and found that the carrot had grown through a ring. But not just any ring, her long lost wedding band! Hard to believe, but there it was, the white gold band with seven diamonds that she had lost 16 years before. The family theorizes that the ring slipped off Lena’s finger and ended up in the compost pile, which eventually was spread on the garden. See, carrots are good for you.
