Germany: Widower finds lost wedding ring on sprouting carrot

An 82-year-old widower has been reunited with his lost wedding ring after he found it growing around a carrot. The man, who has not been named, lost the ring three years ago while gardening in his hometown of Bad Münstereifel, Germany, reports the Huffington Post.

But much to his delight, the ring was unearthed during this year’s harvest. 

According to AP, the man’s wife continually reassured him that the ring would turn up one day.

Sadly, she died six months ago, ahead of the couple’s 50th wedding anniversary.

But Metro said the man is in good spirits after finding the ring, joking that you do indeed “reap what you sow”.
