Me too, if it means the deer would leave them alone.
So, the colder temperature in the fridge only slows the ripening process. I wasn’t sure if it affects the quality of ripening.
I need to find better storage. My usual place is way too warm right now due to the heatwave. It’s been warmer here in the past 2 weeks than it was in summer, which is a double whammy for my fruit growing adventures.
