Am I too late?

Am I too late?

I'm wondering if I'm too late to start Onion Sets. I saw at my grocery store yesterday they're selling white and yellow onion sets for $1.68/lb. That is pretty tempting, but I don't know if it's too late for me. I live right between zone 6b and 7a, Middle Tennessee. What I've seen on-line this morning is that you're supposed to plant onion sets first thing once it warms up, which was about 6 weeks ago.

I found this handy site which gives that same advice " Onions can be planted as soon as the garden can be tilled in the spring, usually late March or early April in prime growing regions" But also says that harvest (for sets) can begin after 100 days. If I were to buy the sets tomorrow and plant them on Saturday the 15th (the 135th day of the year) 100 days later puts me at August 24th, still summer time down here.

Is it worth a shot or will I be wasting my dollar?
