Once they're ripe I'd remove them from the pods if they haven't escaped already and make sure they're really dry. Then store in paper envelopes, not plastic

They'll go brown or black and the pod will dry off, then they're ready

Can someone tell me what this is, please?

I have dry soil for the most part Will. Some clay, possibly subsoil. and all lacking organic stuff. Gradually improving around with composting and the output of the shredder but there's a long way to go.
