A year ago this week we were talking about spring cooking and recipes, with a heavy emphasis on garden and ice cream. There was mint chocolate cookie ice cream, a review of a good ice cream maker, tips for windowboxes, and a cold-hardy fig tree. There was a tutorial on how to make a basic vinaigrette, and some great spring salads too. Here’s a quick look back at The Kitchn a year ago this week.

Hanging a mint chandelier in the garden.

• What’s in season? English peas and celery root.

• Look at all these seeds!
