An old Italian lived alone in New Jersey. Hewanted 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. Iknow if you were here my troubles would be over. I know you would be happy to dig the plot for me, like in the good old days.
Love, Papa

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


Dear Pop,
Don't dig up that garden. That's where the bodies are buried.
Love, Vinnie

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

Belle, you are always there to put a smile on my face. Coming from an Italian family, I know how important it is to have tomato plants in your garden.
