A Swedish woman’s wedding band disappeared in 1995 after she had taken it off while doing her Christmas baking. Sixteen years later, gathering vegetables from her garden, she found the ring encircling a carrot.
The family surmises that the ring had been discarded with vegetable peelings that were either turned into compost or fed to their sheep.
