The Annual Tomato Garden
An old man 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
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.
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 am 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.
Go ahead and plant the tomatoes now. That's the best I could do under the circumstances.

Man, that's funny. I'm going to have to remember to tell my dad this one, he is about to till up his garden soon and plant the tomatoes!
BTW I am not in prison and he won't have to contact the FBI, dad has a rototiller. LOL.
