When a Canadian woman lost her diamond engagement ring in the garden 13 years ago, she thought it was gone for good. But this week it was found on a carrot, plucked from the soil on the family farm.

Eighty-four-year-old Mary Grams said she thinks she lost the ring while pulling a large weed from the garden in September 2004.

"I went to the garden for something and then I don't know I seen this big, big weed and I don't know why I had to pull it. I should have left it or at least pulled with my right hand. It must have got caught in here somewhere and pulled the ring off and I still can't figure out the big knuckle it got over it somehow."

Grams received the ring in 1951, a year before she married her husband.

After it was lost she quickly replaced it.

Her daughter-in-law was the one who pulled the lucky carrot from the ground.
