Should I Harvest the Onions That Have Bulbs, but Haven’t Bloomed Yet?

These onions are still quite small, and we would like to see them get bigger before harvesting them. Can we snip off the buds and leave them in the ground a bit (to gain more size) before harvesting?

Yes, you should trim off the flowers. They divert energy from the onion bulb. You can leave the bulbs in the ground until the leave turn yellow and they will continue to grow.
