In the garden last year I planted onion bulbs. The tops were eaten by bunnies and other critters, so I did not have a harvest of onions. However, this spring I have growth - several shoots are at least three incehes high. Should I leave these? Will the onion be ok for eating?

You can check to see if they have a decent bulb and if they do, they are fine for harvesting and eating. The damage caused them last year may have made it so the bulb did not form well, but it is just as likely they did fine and you will have an unexpected onion crop.
