    Hi Aunt Sal, welcome to the Vine. I'd wait till we've had a good warm sunny day (or two if you can) so they are as dry as possible them cut them of with a bit of stalk on them. If you've a greenhouse put them in there or somewhere sunny to ripen fully, then when they've dried out the seeds should come out easy.

    It's a case of leaving as long as poss but beating the wildlife
