The plants need their leaves for a few weeks more. After the crop is over, you can cut all the leaves off.

Poppy seed head

Place the seed head in a paper bag and hang the bag somewhere dry where the seed head can mature until the seeds are rattling dry. You may be lucky.

We all might have more success with white flowered runner beans.

Ain't nature wonderful !!??
