At the end of the GGAP event we had 12 Tshirts left.  They are at The Dress Code Downtown Gloucester.  You could also buy one of the few remaining Good Morning Gloucester T Shirts there.  100% of the money you spend to purchase a t shirt goes to the Matteo Russo Children Fund.

Tomorrow at 8:00AM my interview with Rory will be available right here at GMG.

Barbara Koen’s Dress Code Downtown Tomato Garden

Huge progress since we first checked in on Barbara Koen’s Dress Code Downtown Tomato Garden. I frankly don’t know what she’s gonna do with all the tomatoes that are growing in her little patch. There must be at least triple the amount of tiny green tomatoes gowning now than there were a couple of weeks ago. I also spotted what looked to be some basil growing.

The Dress Code- Downtown Tomato Garden- Thinking Green!

There has been a trend that I’ve noticed since we did the Downtown Flower Box Competition.

That trend is of downtown stores and restaurants planting veggies and herbs.

Eric at Passports put up flower boxes after I gave himcrap about not having an entry in the Flower Box Competition and he decided to plant all kinds of herbs and hot peppers to use in the restaurant. That’s pretty damn cool!

The Topside Grill also has herbs that they plant in their Flower Boxes.

Now I found out Babara at The Dress Code has planted tomatos! I’ll be keeping track of the progress of the Dress Code Tomatos here on the blog. Here are the first pics-
