Randall, I'm okay just feel like I've had my bell rung very loud. :) On my way to chiropractor after I pick up rental car. My little Yaris didn't win the round with the big pickup, but no blood or broken bones were involved. As the cop at the scene said "it did what it was suppose to do", meaning the car withstood the impact and I'm alive.

I looked at local Toyota dealership website and all they had was really big trucks. Thanks so much for info on Nissan. I'll look at them. I'll definitely have to get a used one. My insurance covers a replacement vehicle but, not sure how much "replacement". 

As much as I liked my little car, I would be very happy with a little truck. I really need a load of dirt and I've been trying to figure out how to get it without paying $100 delivery for $40 worth of dirt!  Trashing my car to get a truck wasn't part of the plan. lol 

BTW, talked to my friend after accident, she said "your guardian angel was watching over you!". I took a deep breath and said "well, I don't know about that" and moved on.  grrrrrr.

Oh wow, Barbara! Sorry about the accident. Hope you're okay.

Only two companies make small pickups nowadays (Toyota and Nissan). There may be some good used ones out there, a lot cheaper. I think they're ideal for a single person. And I'm glad mine has a bed liner.  Good luck.

Sighhhhh. It's sad when you envy someone a truck full of horse poop, but, I do. :)  A pickup truck re-arranged my car yesterday and me a little bit. I'm not too bad off as I can still think and I'm thinking I'll get a small pickup to replace my little car and then I can haul all my garden stuff. :)

So I went to the county fairgrounds where people keep their harness racing horses, to shovel a load of manure into my Tacoma truck. As luck would have it, a front loader tractor was loading a semi with the steaming hot and heavy horse poop. Yes, I got him to "load me up"! Wonderful! All I had to do was drive it home (10 mi) and shovel it out--much easier than shoveling it in. I'll let it "bake" all winter before spreading it out on the garden, mixed with regular compost.  I'm a happy gardener.

I checked on the Hollywood AFTER I said I would like it - and am happy to say it will be perfect. Good in my zone, 300-400 chill hours required - self-pollinating and 30' x 20'.  

I have a spot for  one!  Only you have to promise me that if it dies you won't ban me from your group. :(  

It will be considered bare root, right?  If you send after the 1st it will be perfect time for me to plant.

That would be great! Wouldn't it be fun to see I could keep them alive? :)

Barbara, if you would like a couple, I can mail them to you.

Daniel, re the Plum cuttings - ummm, ship them to San Antonio? :)

Daniel, thanks for posting it for me. Think I need help in the computer area too.

How about...

Barbara, I've been gardening a long time, and it still amazes me to see soil transformed by organic soil building practices. When I filled in the new part of the raised bed and stood back, I thought, wow! That's really impressive! And I didn't do it, it was nature improving the soil with a little boost from the compost and leaves.
