Farmer Proposes To Girlfriend With One Carrot Diamond Ring
Proposals are meant to be something special where you let your significant other know you want to spend the rest of your life with them.
Some people like to go really subtle, cool and chilled out and maybe propose during a Love Island ad break where as others will pull out all the stops before getting down on one knee.
Hopefully it ends up being the proposal that the other person has dreamt about getting because, let's be honest, there's no real room for a do over.
So let's hope the woman who received this incredible one-carrot diamond engagement ring was happy when her farmer boyfriend revealed it to her.
According to Perth Now, Canadian John Neville grows his own vegetables and keeps farm animals and thought of the perfect way to get down on one knee for his girlfriend,Danielle 'DeeJay' Squires, of six years.
Speaking to NDTV, John explained how he came up with the idea for the quirky proposal after hearing a news story about a woman who lost her engagement ring while she was gardening.
So John planted his crop and had the ring sit nicely around a carrot seedling, hoping it would grow into the ring and make the perfect proposal.
"It was a bit of a process," he said. "I put a lot effort into it to make sure it was a successful engagement proposal."
When it came to the big day, John asked DeeJay if she could help him with plucking the carrots from the ground. As he started pulling them out, he noticed they were well formed, but had no clue whether the special carrot had worked.
He asked DeeJay to pull out the one in the middle and lo and behold, the ring was fastened perfectly around the carrot.
"She was a little bit confused for two seconds," Neville said. "Then her eyes started welling up and she nodded her head yes."
DeeJay admits it was certainly not a proposal she was expecting.
"The more I think about it, the more amazing it is," she said.
It's certainly one to tell the kids about when they're older and it's definitely a good idea if you're a crop farmer or just enjoy planting your own seeds. Although it sounds like this is pretty hard to pull off perfectly so make sure you know what you're doing if you want to go down this route.
