Ours are in so early that you hear old timers refer to the last snow of the year as the " onion snow". If you are using onion sets as we call them plant about 3 inches deep and 5-6 inches apart. They grow great!

So if I plant now, when do I harvest onions?

Onions is one of the things I don't grow because I can buy them 365 days a year at the grocery and they taste just fine. I'm limiting my garden to things I can't get in a store worth a crap. Tomatoes, sweet corn, pickling cucumbers, etc.
I go through an insane amount of onions with all the cooking I do. especially making stocks.

that is not a problem here in south lousiana, but I might have to plant them in a raised bed so they don't sit in too much moist soil. 14" wide by 16 feet long onion bed.
