they will probably go to seed. Some of mine did last year, but the onions themselves never came back to a useful state

Success consists of a series of little daily victories.

Hi all! I've been planting onions in my garden for several years now and love them to death. This past year, however, I got overwhelmed in my personal life (working on a master's degree!) and didn't get all my onions harvested. This past week I've been out to start my spring clean up and the forgotten onions have sprouted new growth. The plants are looking very happy BUT the bulbs themselves are what I would call "empty".

My question is this: should I leave them and let them grow? Will they grow (the bulbs) or putter out? I'll probably leave a few for pest control either way, but I don't want a gang of onions taking up nutrients and space if they're not going to yield anything.

The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.
