Lost ring returns on carrot 13 years later

By: AP

A Canadian woman who lost her engagement ring while weeding her garden 13 years ago is wearing it proudly again after her daughter-in-law pulled it from the ground on a misshapen carrot.

Mary Grams, 84, says she cannot believe the lucky carrot actually grew through and around the diamond ring she had long given up hope of finding.

Mrs Grams said she never told her husband, Norman, she lost the ring, but told her son. Her husband died five years ago.

Her daughter-in-law, Colleen Daley, found the ring while harvesting carrots at the farm near Armena, Alberta, where Grams used to live.

When she was washing the vegetables she noticed the ring and spoke to her husband, Mrs Grams’ son, about what she had found.

Mrs Grams said she was eager to try the ring on again and with family looking on, it slid on her finger as easily as it did when her husband gave it to her.
