During August, I often hear an approaching green fig beetle before I see it. Out in the garden, it sounds like a jumbo jet coming in for a landing. These giant fig beetles are terrible navigators as they clumsily bump into almost anything that is in their way. Buzzing in circles and zig-zagging their way, they seem to be unable to distinguish a white wall from open sky. I hear the buzz, then whack! as it smacks into the house — or me. Momentarily dazed as it wiggles on its backside; stunned but no worse off after its crash landing.

The big news in the public library world this week is the opening of the new San Diego Central Library. The old central library, built in 1954, was small and, according to Sunday's Los Angeles Times, long overdue for replacement. In fact, it sort of echoes Costa Mesa's story, except that we haven't gotten our central library yet. For 40 years, people participated in efforts to replace the San Diego library building, and although a number of branch libraries were built, the central library plans were put on hold.

Whether you remember selling them door to door as a Brownie or buying them from the office Girl Scout mother, most everyone can admit to sneaking a box of Thin Mints (preferably one chilled in the freezer). But one Orange County Scout leader says that tradition is a bit too sweet. Monica Serratos of Ladera Ranch and her Daisy Troop 2753 will display a Girl Scouts 100th anniversary "cake" made of fruit at the Orange County Fair on July 27 as part of the Girl Scouts of the United States of America centennial celebration.

While London prepares to host the summer Olympics, Adams Elementary School students competed in their own version - only no one walked away with a medal Friday. Instead, everyone walked away with ideas for fun physical activities and a taste of new fruits and vegetables. "We want them to feel like a winner because they're doing it," said Newport-Mesa Unified nutritionist Pam Williams with the Network for a Healthy California. "They walk away a winner. " The Costa Mesa school was one of about a half dozen this year to host the Nutrition Olympics put on by the Network for a Healthy California.

UC Irvine's Anteaters are about to start chowing down on a lot more oranges. Anteater athletes planted a grove of the citrus-bearing trees Wednesday afternoon near the Crawford Athletics Complex along West Peltason Drive. "They will grow there for years and years," said women's tennis team member Stephanie Hammel of the trees. "The fruit will give members of the community or athletes the opportunity to come here, pick the fruit and enjoy it. " The 24 trees were donated by the Orange County Great Park and are part of a project to upgrade the pool score board and beautify the surrounding area, said Cathy Lawhon, university director of media relations and community outreach.

This past winter I wrote two columns about the proper pruning of stone fruits and other deciduous fruit trees. This important chore continues to be one of the more misunderstood gardening responsibilities. I still get comments from readers who say they enjoyed the articles. I promised then that I would mention the value of summer pruning at a later time. In those original columns, written in December, I remarked that the objectives of summer and winter pruning are quite different, although both important.

COSTA MESA — A line of students stretched outside of the cafeteria, waiting to be served tasting-sized portions of 21 fruits and vegetables. Some of the samples were well-known flavors — watermelon and strawberries — while others, like jicama, garbanzo beans, figs and dates, were more unusual to the young tastebuds. The students with the more foreign fruits had to try harder to get their peers to sample their wares, but no student put in more effort than the one hawking zucchini.

If you're like many home gardeners, you may have added fruit trees to your garden in the past two years. Maybe a peach or an apricot, or even a few citrus or dwarf avocado. Maybe you're more into grapes and berries. Perhaps you're more the vegetable type and started growing your own tomatoes, cucumbers, squash and others. Did you know that all of these fruits and vegetables need to be pollinated to produce crops? You can reliably improve pollinations of all your fruits and vegetables by attracting the right insects.

Last week I tackled one of the most misunderstood home gardening chores: the pruning of stonefruits and other deciduous fruit trees. In that column I explained the purpose of winter pruning is to achieve quality fruit and a higher yield, not to control tree size, which is often attempted. Summer is when these trees should be pruned to restrict size. Cutting back these trees heavily in winter will not reduce the tree size; it only serves to eliminate most fruit production, while forever making a mess of the tree's branching and structure.

Orange County offers both opportunity and pitfalls for farmer's market shoppers. The area's demand for fresh local produce far exceeds the supply, particularly for crops such as stone fruit and apples, and it's difficult for upstate growers to make it through the traffic to O.C. venues. One of the best in the area is the recently revived Newport Beach market. Manager Mark Anderson has made a point of carefully screening his produce vendors to exclude cheaters who might sell produce bought from wholesalers or other farms.
