A clever prisoner

A clever prisoner story

        A potato farmer was sent to prison just the time when he should have been digging the ground for planting the new crop of potatoes. He knew that his wife not strong enough to do the digging, although she could manage to do the planting. He also knew that none of his friends or neighbors would be willing to do the digging for him. So he wrote a letter to his wife saying. “Please do not dig the potato field. I hid the money and the gun there.”
        Ten days later, he got a letter from his wife saying, “I think somebody must have read your letter before it left the prison. Some policemen came two days ago and dug  up the entire potato field. What should I do now?”
        The prisoner wrote back at once, “Plant the potatoes, of course.”
