In October 2011, a Swedish woman found the wedding ring she had lost 16 years earlier around a carrot growing in her garden. Lena Paahlson said she had taken the ring off when cooking in her kitchen at Christmas 1995, but it went missing from the kitchen counter.
She did not see it again until she was picking carrots in her garden in 2011 and found one with her ring around it.
She thinks it must have fallen into the sink and been mixed with potato peelings that were composted or fed to sheep.
This is believed to be a record for the length of time after which a missing ring has been found on a carrot.
