The Tomato Garden
An old Italian man
lived alone in the country. He wanted to dig his
tomato garden but it was very hard work as the
ground was hard. His only son, Vincenzo, who
used to help him, was in prison.
The old man wrote a letter to his son and
described his predicament.
I am feeling pretty bad because it looks
like I won't be able to plant my tomato garden
this year. I am getting too old to be digging up
a garden plot. If you were here, my troubles would
be over. I
know you would dig the garden for me.
A few days later he received
a letter from his son.
I'd do anything for you Papa, except dig up that
garden. That's where I buried the bodies.
At 4 am the next morning, FBI and local police
arrived and dug up the entire area without finding
any bodies. They apologized to the old man and
left. The 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.
