    An old Italian 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 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
