I'm in one of those cold climates you're talking about I can plant dill in May and harvest the same plants (bolted of course) through until august, where I can plant more and get a new crop of leaves in September.
Garlic should be easy. it's finished before anything else apart maybe from the dill is done, so just use some from the cupboard, and onions, well if you just want some for flavouring, they don't need to be dried and ready for storage to use. Of course if you want to pickle them then you will have to wait. Since the onions we grow as day-length sensitive there isn't any way to move when they are ready, so everything would have to match them.

Skandi, when do you harvest your garlic? Ours is harvested in the fall, as are onions.
