    Hmmm. Do you plant your onions from seed or sets? Are you getting onions with the right daylength requirements to match your area? Are they getting suficient water and is the soil friable enough?

    Friable would mean soft or fluffy.

    Onions are heavy feeders and require lotsa sun and water. Try some bone meal.
