I was digging in our garden when I found a chest full of gold coins. I was about to run straight home to tell my wife about it, but then I remembered why I was digging in our garden.

Why would you run home if you where digging in your garden?

D

I think its because if he told him about finding it in the garden she'd rip him a new ass

A

He was digging a grave for his wife in the garden

"then I remembered why I was digging in our garden" the punchline is that the reason he was digging in the garden for gold in the first place was because the wife used all the money.

None of these seem to explain the joke. When he says, "our garden" who is he saying it to? So this guy has a garden, that he shares with someone else, and is within reasonable running distance from where his home and wife are. Why was he digging in the garden?

i think its because he was planning to kill and bury his wife

banana peel is right. A wife will have joint ownership with her husband. Therefore, the garden is "their garden" but will soon become "my garden." He was so surprised by finding the Gold, that he forgot that he had killed his wife and is digging a hole to bury her. Thus, he CAN'T tell his wife, because she is already DEAD!
