The Tomato Garden

An  old Italian fellow lived alone in New  Jersey .   He wanted to plant his annual  tomato garden, but  it was very difficult work, as the ground was hard.
His  only son, Vincent, who used to help him, was in prison.
The  old man wrote a letter to his son and described his  predicament:

Dear  Vincent,
I  am feeling pretty sad, because it looks like I won't be able  to plant my tomato garden this year. I'm just getting too old  to be digging up a garden plot. I know if you were here my  troubles would be over.  I know you would be happy to  dig the plot for me, like in the old days.
Love,  Papa

A few days later he received a  letter from his son.

Don't dig up that garden. That's where the bodies are  buried.

At 4 a.m. the next morning, FBI  agents and local police arrived and dug up the entire area  without finding any bodies. They apologized to the old man and left.

That  same day the old man received another letter from his son.

Dear  Pop,
Go ahead and plant the tomatoes now. That's the best I  could do under the  circumstances.   

Love you, Vinnie
