Etymology 2[edit]

The adjective might actually spawn a separate article, truck patch. I also wonder if this sense is actually part of etymology 1. The garden sense seems related to things that are carted or hauled from a garden after harvest.

I obviously need to consult bigger dictionaries. --Allamakee Democrat 01:34, 22 July 2006 (UTC)

No, it comes from the sense of ‘commodities for barter’, from the verb truck = trade, exchange. I have reordered things to try and make that more clear. Widsith 08:12, 22 July 2006 (UTC)
