It must be summer

Yesterday I ate new potatoes and fresh green beans for lunch, and supper included a stir fry of zucchini, sweet pepper, hot pepper, and onion.  Today for lunch I ate the leftover stir fry, plus burpless cucumbers.  All of that came from my garden.  Ooh, yeah.  Can't wait for the first tomato. 

The unbearable heat continues, sans rain.  That means I spend too much time watering.  Last year (or the year before?) I purchased some irrigation equipment from Lee Valley, but never set it up.  I would look into that, but it is too hot. 

Some time in the past, I also purchased a soil test kit, also never used.  And some plastic edging that I never installed.  And doohickeys for organizing garden tools that never made it out of the box.  And after the construction of the raised bed, there is still more treated lumber that never morphed into the intended backyard project.  Also, two new smoke detectors are still in their packages.  (Don't worry - my old smoke detector is working just fine.)

At least this is done: 

Now,if someone would install the clothesline that has been sitting in its box on the dryer for about 8 months, the new laundry room would be really complete.
