Here is my first time meeting Lupe last weekend. Look how much she's grown since her debut just last week! I think she was motivated by all the positive encouragement from our blog readers.
Lupe on August 21, 2010 (Day 57)
Pretty in Pink on August 22, 2010 (Day 58)
Keith and I discussed the need to provide some sort of support for Lupe. I have seen pictures of knee highs being used as melon support, but we didn't have any knee highs on hand. So we borrowed this pink bandana from Reese (one of our dogs), who got it from the doggie groomer a few weeks ago. We promised to return the bandana to Reese, after Lupe was done with it. Reese didn't seem to mind at all.
We also have a second melon growing on this same plant. He showed up a few days after Lupe, but he has been growing at a slower pace. Much slower. He is also shaped a little lopsided. Keith has dubbed him Tardo. We don't talk about him much. And Keith tells me that this one is now turning yellow as of today. I guess we really won't talk about him much anymore.
But here is a picture of him, if you must see. You can also see Sienna (our other dog) in the background, wearing her pink bandana (each dog got her own bandana from the groomer). Lupe is the blurry melon you see in the back. Tardo is in the front.
