ringLin Keitch, 69, from Monkton Heathfield near Taunton, Somerset, noticed it while washing her home-grown vegetables.

It had been a 40th birthday present from her husband Dave, and was lost by their daughter.

The couple believe the carrot grew through the ring. Ms Keitch said it was a “chance in a million” discovery.

“Dave dug up the carrots and left them outside the back door,” she said.

“I cut the greens off and scrubbed them, and I thought, ‘What’s that? Goodness, it’s my ring’.”

She said even though the ring, with an amethyst stone in the centre, was covered in earth she recognised it immediately.
