little snails or slugs, or something icky

My poor garden has been getting attacked by something that's been eating into my root vegetables. The veggies are mostly fine, except there are brown streaks through the flesh -- obviously a tunneling something or other. A snail, a slug, an insect burrowing in. It is so frustrating to pull up a turnip and find that half of it isn't any good because of the brown streaks.

I cut away the yucky stuff, and have still have some good root to eat, but it makes my veggies ugly enough that I feel like I can't give them away to friends. I would want to give veggies that at least were whole, and didn't need trimming down.

I have other things coming up later this summer, so I'll have to wait for those.
