using refrigerated green beans for seeds
I save seeds every year from my green beans. This year I had them drying out in a box in the garage when my husband found them. Thinking he was doing me a favor, he put them in the fridge in the garage. I didn't find them till a couple of days later. Can they still be used for seed, and if so, should I remove them right away or try letting them dry? I'm afraid if I let them dry in their present state, they will mildew and mold.

They should be fine. As long as your fridge is kept at a normal temperature (nothing freezes in it), they are okay. As a matter of fact, storing seeds in the fridge often can help increase their viability so that they can be viable for many years.
