I planted red onion seedlings in April. I was waiting for the tops to bend over, as I've read. But now they're flowering. When should I have harvested? Also. The necks are very thick.

I don't grow onions but it says 24-34 weeks until harvest. It is probably time to harvest if they are going to seed. Pull out and allow to dry.
