How do I collect and store seeds from beans?
I have collected Scarlet Runner Beans for seeds next year, how can I tell when they are dry enough to store?

If you have harvested the pods, remove the beans from the shell and spread them out on dry hard surface in the house to dry naturally. Usually only takes a week or two in normal conditions. If the beans are still very soft, you might consider drying them in a dehydrator for a day or two.
