Q.My garlic did not come up.

I dug up the bulbs today, most were “slimey, sort of snotty looking” excuse the description, wet and very soft. Some just disappeared into the ground. I did find little red pinhead sized bumps on 1 piece. Planted in Oct. outside. This is April 20.

It sounds like they remained too wet and rotted. Try starting them indoors until they are established, and moving them out after next year. This will help in areas that remain too wet for too long.
