Some boring bug has ruined all of my daikon. They bore into the root, and
eat their way through it, leaving brown goo behind. It's too late to do
anything about them this year, but what can I do next time to prevent this?

Radishes grow fast, so you should be able to start from seed 6 weeks
before the first frost date of your area. I recommend planting the
new crop in another location.
Daikon are a bit slower growing, and I'm going to try for a fall crop
means the soil will be warm and full of hungry bugs :(
Mix heaping teaspoonfuls of wood ashes 1 inch into the soil where th
radishes and onions will be growing. another thing u might try addin
is some fleece over the rows after u have them seeded i have heard tha
it does help. good luck, sockiescat:)
