Cold soup recipes?

My garden is doing really well this year (let hope it continues this way!) and I'd love some ideas for cold soup recipes. It would be great if they'd incorperate what I'm growing. I'm growing:
Tomatos, cucumbers, califlower, hot peppers, potatos, lots of basil, chives, oregano, mint, and rosemary.
On a side note, we were able to grow both an avocado and lemon tree from seeds this year! They wont be producing fruit this year (maybe never, who knows) but its exciting and I thought I'd share the news :)
Your rosemary reminded me of a good trick I discovered: put a big sprig of it (dried works as well) in the lower part of your steamer with the water when you steam summer squash, and it gives a good perfume to the squash without the strong taste. I've made a very nice cold soup by blending this squash with some chicken broth and then beating in some sour cream and chilling it.
You could do a cold curried cauliflower soup. Just cook the cauli, some onions, garlic and ginger in veggie broth. Add curry powder and purée until smooth. Chill.
You could do something similar with carrots, too.
