Give us more information, what format does your Garamond
font has (type1, truetype or opentype). Have you tried
to load the font without ConTeXts interface:


\garamond fi ffi -- --- ``text'' fl


Can you try to test your typescript with MkIV if this
makes a difference and finally, what is the output from
"mtxrun --script fonts --list AGaramond* --info".
