I would not allow the seeds to fall among the plants producing
the pods. They are unlikely to produce plants "just like"
the ones they are from. They will not hurt the plants, so you can
let them ripen if you wish.
Pods generally will ripen in 65-80 days. When they begin to turn brown
and split at the top, remove them, open them, and let the seeds dry.
Plant them in the fall. There is a lot of information in the archives
regarding seed planting/germination.
You may also have an "air pod"-- pods with no seeds inside. I have
gotten quite a few of these this year.
