I just had to share it with everybody I know! My BF proposed to me on our 4 year anniversary (of our first date)... a long time but well worth the wait! He asked me to help him harvest down at the field, said that the local grocery store had put in an order for arugula and radishes. He asked if I'd start harvesting radishes, so I did. I was harvesting radishes and then I said out loud, "There's a ring on this one" -- sure enough, one of the radishes had an engagement ring around it. He'd put the ring on the radish three weeks ago, when the plant was still a seedling, so that the radish grew big enough that the ring would stay on when I picked it. (How many people can say that they were proposed to on a radish??) Now for the really funny part: I actually *missed* the radish with the ring at first... I was just going along pulling out the biggest radishes... then he said, "Well, we have a lot of radishes, why don't you start at the beginning of the row and pick every one?" Of course at this point I complained that he was always trying to tell me how to harvest things his way. But for once, there was a really good reason. I've been pretty much smiling (and hugging and kissing him) ever since. I can't wait to get married and spend the rest of my life with this guy... ETA: of course, there was no order from the grocery store... he made the whole thing up just to get me to pick the radishes And I didn't even remember when the anniversary of our first date was, so it was a complete surprise!!
