I live in the SF Bay Area and my green onions are blooming already,
after growing all through the winter. Onions are cold-season crops, they
go dormant when it gets hot in the Summer. I suggest you plant your
onions in late fall :)
How much water have they gotten? Most plants (not sure about onions, first
time growing them) don't like to be too wet or too dry. A little bit of
water (rain counts!) once or twice a week is likely all they need.
You can only do so much with caulk, cardboard, and duct tape.

I don't think they were over or under watered, though we had a couple of heat
over a few days during the past 2 months.
I think I'll germinate them in starter trays next time so they grow a bit
before ground planing.
You killed onions? I didn't know it was possible. I pull them, and slice
them and dice them, and they still come back from the compost pile (like
in the Sorcerer's Apprentice). Try you coax them back by keeping the
ground moist (not wet). By all means, plan for the worst and start more
onions but you may want to give that time to the first planting to
