This fenced in double lot was a vegetable garden for decades and was planted and tended by the kindest soul. Today it's a dandelion field. Neighbors told me that the man who lived in the yellow house died. Records indicate that his house sold at the city's tax auction for $500. His gardens are still visible via google satellite.
