Garden update

I planted my broccoli yesterday, Then today added wood mulch. And some hay bails to surround. This way I can cover with plastic, to protect. if we get another frost or snow. I found my asparagus to be completely damaged. Like mush.

Onions, they either over wintered or seeded on there own. They are mushy on the bulb. Question: Do I leave them in the ground or remove them? Will the seed be OK?
 Notes
I read onions with large bulbs like this one. It is a yellow onion that I grow for storage is a biennial, Which means you can grow it just foliage and bulbs the first year. Then they bloom and set seed the following year, The plants will die after that.

I would like to save my own seed from the plants, to use next year.  These onion bulbs would not be good for storage. Even if they were not cold/frost damaged. They'll still taste OK but the thick flower stalk that comes up from the center of the bulb will cause a large open neck on the bulb. Bulbs with large open necks don't keep well in storage.
