Saved Bean and Pea Seeds

I think bean seed saving is one of the easiest seed savings to do–though arugula and bok choy and kale are equally easy!  For the peas: I left a few pods to dry on the plant after they stopped fruiting. 
For the beans:  I cut off the top of the plant, leaving the root in the ground (to leave the nitrogen nodules) and hung the plant to dry.
When the skin had cured, I peeled it off and voila!
