Woman delighted as misshapen carrot leads to lost engagement ring

While gardening on the family farm back in 2004, Grams was pulling out a weed when her engagement ring fell off her finger.

If you're skeptical something like this could actually happen, know it's not the first time a lost ring has sprouted up this way. Over a decade later, the ring that she thought was gone forever has resurfaced, and in the most unlikely of places.

A few weeks later, the clever woman made a decision to buy a look-a-like so her husband wouldn't notice her missing band.

"I asked my husband if he recognized the ring".

CBC News reports that Mary Grams married her husband Norman in Alberta, Canada, in 1952.

"I didn't tell him, even, because I thought for sure he'd give me heck or something", Grams told the CBC.

An 84-year-old has been left elated after her long lost diamond engagement ring turned up on the family farm, wrapped around a carrot.

She got the ring back in 1951, (for GAA fans, that's the last time that Mayo won Sam Maguire) and replaced it quickly in the mid-noughties after she had lost it. Mary's daughter-in-law plucked a carrot that had grown straight through the precious bauble.

"When it came up after that many years, I don't know what to think anymore". But unlike Grams, the connection to the garden was not so direct.

"I'm going to wear it because it still fits", said the delighted octogenarian.

"He said, "yeah", she said.

Mary Grams of Alberta recently found her engagement ring with the help of her daughter-in-law and a carrot.

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

It turned up this week on her family farm, fit snugly around a recently-uprooted carrot.

Sadly, Grams' husband passed away five years ago, only a month after their 60th wedding anniversary.
