Smashwords is a great place to find shorter story fiction. Enjoyed this one in the way the parts were fitted.

"One spring day, while hoeing an old asparagus patch, a new-from-the-city hobby farmer found an engagement ring encircling the green finger of an emerging shoot. The rural locals agree that much of the story is true. Their theories vary on how the ring got there."
Ring Theory is a well told rural tale told in four distinct section. Each piece - while telling expounding on a possibly theory regarding the ring - ends up revealing more about the union and inevitable dissolution within this four character family.
Very charming... very poignant.
