[Market-farming] Onion planting question

Hello all, 

I would also like to ask an onion question. I live in NY at 42 degrees latitude. I usually plant long day onions- sweet and storage, in late March. I would like to plant some in early February in low tunnels. Should I stick to long-day varieties even though they will begin to bulb before the summer solstice?

Thanks,

Mike- New Leaf Farm

Specifically, we are are seeing small worm (like very tiny loopers) and finding pin-hole feeding damage on spinach. However, not actually seeing these insects feeding so it could be something else. Has anyone seen feeding like this and actually seen the insects responsible?
