Is it too late to try and transplant some of my onions and leeks that I got behind on. They were started from seed in the spring and I just didn't have time to do all the dividing earlier. Is it too late??????

This is the time of year I transplant my leeks, so I'd think they'd be fine. I'm assuming you're talking about winter leeks, not summer leeks.
Be sure to water well 12-24 hours ahead of the time you're planning to dig them up.
Onions might be more questionable, but since they're not going to do much if you leave them crowded... it doesn't seem like you've got much to lose in trying.

I agree with Travis but I did do the transplanting early last month (for the first time!).
