Not a bad sauce, and a nice texture, but Lucini tastes a bit raw, like it wasn't cooked long enough, and it could use a little salt. If you like eating tomatoes right out of the garden, this might be for you. There's also a fairly noticeable carrot flavor — not bad, necessarily.

Chewed leaves are likely the handiwork of slugs, nocturnal creatures that especially love wet weather. These slimy creatures, from a couple of inches to half a foot or more in length, are basically snails without shells.

Alternative salts — those other than sodium chloride — are another possibility. Calcium chloride is a frequently used alternative that, besides being less damaging to plants and soils than sodium chloride, also melts ice faster and is effective at temperatures well below zero degrees Fahrenheit. Sodium chloride, in contrast, loses some of its effectiveness at temperatures above 10 degrees Fahrenheit.

Although it takes a little more time, baking potatoes gives them a crisp exterior that elevates the skin rather than tossing this vitamin-loaded shell into the garbage can.
