Instead of making lemonade from lemons when her life took a wrong turn in 2005, author Susan Hanf instead planted an entire metaphorical lemon orchard. She's still tending her orchard in this follow-up to the entertaining My Lemon Orchard. With the same sense of humor, this new collection of entertaining short stories, My Lemon Orchard Gets Fertilized, describes some of the many misadventures Susan has experienced in her lifetime. From childhood to adulthood, Susan's personal anecdotes provide a humorous look at life. From youthful adventures of finding a dead bullfrog in a creek, to being attacked by a three-inch long snake, or traversing a construction site fence only to be immersed in mounds of mud, Susan's stories remind us of our own early mischievousness. As adults, many of us can relate to her battles with a computer and other mechanical items, struggles with cooking, and challenges in tackling the ever elusive marathon. With self-effacing humor and frankness, Susan reminds us we're not the only ones who experience misadventure. Join her on a walk through her lemon orchard you'll leave with a laugh and a smile.
