Eating Pole Beans Left on the Vine Over Winter

I have a question regarding pole beans. I live in NJ and if you are not familiar with the weather we have been having just think snow. Anyway, I have noticed that there are still some dried pole bean pods up on my trellis. Do you think I could still use them?

Yes you can use them as dried beans like you get in gro store. Soak them over night. Cook till done, good luck.

Or, you could save them until the weather is warm and plant them.

I am guessing the "poster" is the one who labeled this "Eating pole beans left on the vine over winter." If I was not clear I really wanted to know if the seeds were still good for planting. When dried they are all yellow or brown and dried like paper so I would not think they are edible other than using the seeds. I guess I will give it a try!
