If there are a lot of fruits, then in the garden or in the summer cottage you can equip a pile - this is a pit for temporary storage of vegetables, 0.5-0.6 m deep and 0.4 m wide. The length is chosen arbitrarily, depending on the number of tomatoes.
The pit is covered with straw or geotextile, tomatoes are poured into it with a layer of 30-40 cm, they are covered with the same materials on top, pressed with wooden shields.
