Hi, Mark: No, don't dig 'n' eat. Wait until 3/4 of your plants fall over. Count 10 days. Harvest your onions. Take half of a big onion and cut it into slices. Make an onion sandwich, wrap it in oiled (well, you can use waxed) paper, then go fly-fishing (OK, you can go for a hike or walk). Pretend you are Nick in Hemingway's "Big Two-Hearted River." Oops, a little more than you asked for, wethinks.
