Swedish woman finds a carrot wearing her ring lost 16 years ago

A Swedish farmer found the wedding ring around a carrot in her backyard. According to the Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter, the ring was lost since Christmas 1995.

That day, Lena Paahlsson took the ring to cook the Christmas dinner, she put it on the counter and, after the meal, the jewelry was gone.

According to The Telegraph, Lena and her daughters looked everywhere for the ring, that the bride had designed herself, but for 16 years they had no success.

To their big surprise, over a decade later, a carrot growing in the backyard brought to the surface the mythical lost ring.

While this episode might seem inexplicable, the farmer from Mora, northern Sweden, believes that the ring may have been ingested by a sheep which usually feed on the leftovers of family meals.

The animal manure is then used as fertilizer for the garden, so it may have been the cause of the disappearance and subsequent reappearance of this piece of jewelry.
