how do you know when onions are ready to be pulled from your garden and are the green tops (the part that sticks up out of the ground) edible?

Onions are ready to harvest after the tops turn yellow. The green stems are edible if you decide to harvest small onions while the tops are still green, but the plants won't develop large bulbs until the leaves begin to yellow.
