A WOMAN WHO lost her wedding ring 14 years ago found it on a grown carrot this week.

Canadian woman Mary Grams told the Canadian Broadcasting Commission that she had lost her ring in the family farm in Central Alberta while picking weeds.

The 84-year-old said that she thought she had lost while pulling a large weed from the garden in September 2004.

“We looked high and low on our hands and knees,” she said.

We couldn’t find it. I thought for sure either they rototilled it or something happened to it.

Grams said that she had had the ring since 1951 and quickly replaced it so that her husband wouldn’t find out.

She moved from the area but the family still maintain a garden on the farm where she lost the ring.

It was Grams’ daughter-in-law Colleen Daley who pulled the carrot from the ground with the ring around it.

“I knew it had to belong to either grandma or my mother-in-law,” Daley said.

Because no other women have lived on that farm.

“If you look at it, it grew perfectly around the [ring]. It was pretty weird looking,” Daley said.

I’ve never seen anything like that. It was quite interesting.
