Since temperature affects how a tomato will ripen, or not ripen, I was thinking that as the weather starts dipping into the 40s and 50s in our gardening zone, there is cause to envy the tomato, even as they hang out in the chilly night air. Wouldn’t it be great if humans, like the tomato, stopped “ripening” when the temperature went under 60 degrees? Brad: The aging effect takes a hiatus in winter? … I could get behind that.
