My onions are still growing in my north Texas garden from last year. They never died in the Winter. Now the green parts are getting huge. The bulbs are very small. Will they mature or should I pull them up? I need to prepare to plant my new vegetable plants, but I don't know if I'll be wasting my onions or if they will eventually mature. Also, if they will mature, can I transplant them?

They will, likely, flower this year. This means that they will not focus their energy on the "onion" part. I would suggest digging them up, and using the tops. The green part is often neglected, but you can use them as you would onions.
