let the pods dry out / turn brown and then harvest the seed and keep in a paper bag/envelop in a frost free place until next spring. when dry the seed is often pink/black.

If you have the time and you have lots of pods over, why not just save the seeds from the largest pods in the hope that you will have long pods next year?

As above, choosing the ones from longest pods, largest etc. Save the best as seed in hope of improving your stock

Alternatively, save seed from the plants with the most pods, tenderest pods, least pests and/or diseases, etc.
