rhuhbarbRhubarb, which looks like a pink celery stalk, is botanically a vegetable, but it is used as a fruit largely in pies and sauces. In some areas it is referred to as “Pie Plant”.

Rhubarb comes in two main varieties. Strawberry Rhubarb or (Hothouse) has thin, pale-pink stalks and light green leaves and is typically smaller, less stringy and less course than field rhubarb. It is available from Washington State, California, Oregon and Michigan from mid-January to mid-April. Cherry Rhubarb or (Field) has dark-red stalks, with green leaves and is has a pronounced tart flavor. Field rhubarb is available from Washington State, Michigan, and California from February to June.

It is critical to remove the leaves from rhubarb stalks before using because they are poisonous and can be dangerous in large quantities. Since rhubarb has a tart flavor, combining it with other sweeter fruits is a preferred method of use in pies and muffins.  Rhubarb may take a little extra care in preparing but it’s worth it.

  1. Oh, no. Shapeways is just for prototypes. The final mechs (as you can see in renders on the project page) are made from moulds. They’re much more durable and feature the details much better than 3D printing.

  2. I think this David Wells needs to learn something more than just being a Protestant. He needs to learn that the first priority is to be a “Christian” and not just a “part-time Church member but one who has been baptized with the Holy Spirit and doing the work of the Holy Spirit with “signs, wonders & miracles”. People develop “itchy feet” when they are not receiving the Full Gospel and the ministry that goes with it.

  3. Looks like David had a few survivors who made the change…….

  4. Love the challenge! I’m halfway trough and I can clearly see differences, by butt looks so much perkier! I can’t believe I didn’t believe my bf at first when he said squats are great for the butt, I thought they were only for the legs!
