Plant garlic in bed where carrots had worms?

mlynneo(5)August 24, 2012

I have several 4x8 raised beds and I try to "rotate" my crops carefully. This year I got 33 gorgeous garlic bulbs in a bed and had planned to plant this Fall in the next bed over. However, my carrots in that bed had really bad worm holes in them. Black, gross. I didn't see any actual worms in them, but they had obviously been there. They could be wireworms. They could be carrot fly maggots. My question is "should I still plant my garlic in that bed or try to find another place and leave that one empty for a year?

What you had eating on the carrots is probably Carrot rust fly. It won't be a problem on the garlic.
