Yet Another Reason to Compost!

A Swedish woman who lost her wedding ring sixteen years ago, found it fastened tightly around a carrot growing in her garden, as reported by the Associated Press.  The lady's wedding ring was misplaced while doing some baking   for the Christmas Holidays in 1995.  The family searched frantically for the ring but it was never found and assumed lost forever.  A few weeks ago while pulling up carrots in her garden, she discovered a carrot had grown through her ring.  The family believes that the ring was discarded with the vegetable peelings in the compost bin.
