Think about it this way. Someone who digs and sells rhizomes usually gets out and digs before the soils get warm enough to initiate growth so the buds are nice and compact and haven't started to elongate. Once they're cleaned and graded, they immediately put them in the fridge to help keep them in a dormant state until they're sold and shipped. I'm very familiar with Freshops and know that Dave usually stops shipments sometime in June. He's been digging rhizomes for a few weeks now, so you know they'll store for at least a few months in the fridge which will give you plenty of time not to worry and drink plenty of beer!
