Well, my ? is...what to do with them when the start going to seed. Do you just clip off the seed head? chop off most of the greens? Dig them up? My onions seem to go to seed early each year and I am never quite sure what to do with them. I have been clipping off the seed heads...but an old lady told me to "beat the green parts off of them"... and yet I have also heard that once they go to seed, the bulb quits growing... :shrug: anyone really know???
