    Since it's almost time to plants tomatoes in my area I found this story funny!


    Italian Tomato Garden:



    An old Italian 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.


    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 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
