Too late to plant onion sets?

This is my first year planting onions, is it too late to plant sets?

I have a few planted in our raised beds that I started from seeds months ago, but we are also growing at a community garden.

They just got the plots tilled (yikes!), is it too late to plant from sets there?

RE: Too late to plant onion sets?

I don't think it's ever too late. The onions I harvested last year which I didn't feel were big enough were just kept over the garage last year, they froze solid, and just ended up coming back strong this year when I planted them back in the soil to get bigger.
