DO YOU KNOW WHAT MUD YOU LIVE IN??
The Westfield Subdivision is located partially in Mayde Creek MUD and
partially in Ricewood MUD. The operator of Mayde Creek MUD is EDP and
the operator of Ricewood MUD is Inframark. Interesting fact is that they
share a sewer treatment plant along with a third mud. It is located at
Morton Road and Sunny Meadows.

children. Adopting is a huge financial burden - with local and international

Gardening Tips For October
• Dig and store caladiums before the foliage dies. Allow the bulbs to dry
in the shade, shake off the dried soil and dust with sulphur to control
fungus. Store by hanging in open mesh bags or old panty hose.
• Flowers planted for spring can begin when the temperatures are going
to stay cooler. Shrubs and trees can be planted now. Woody plants
concentrate on root growth through the winter and the more headstart
they can get before summer, the better.
• October 15th is about the time for dividing and planting daylilies.
• Watch out for brown patch in St. Augustine grass. These circular brown
patches are caused by a fungus that is activated by moist cool weather.
Control with Daconil.
• If you need to do any pruning, do it early in the month. The re-growth
stimulated by pruning needs to harden off before that odd-ball frost of
Halloween. Prune fruit trees when leaves begin to fall. Remove all dead,
weak and over-crowded growth. Tip back main branches to control size
and shape. Spray w/dormant oil when temperature is between 30-60
• Cut back tops of perennials after they have bloomed. Divide roots and
transplant anytime from now until March, the earlier the better.
• Get the ant baits down. This will greatly reduce your spring populations.
• Clover left over from last year may be growing. It’s best to hit it with
the post-emerge herbicides in October and November. At least two
applications are usually needed, even if done this early.
• For color throughout the winter, begin planting pansies.
