When the leaves of the plant begin to turn yellow, and before frost, pull the plants and allow them to dry in the sun for 3-7 days. (If it's damp outside you can pull the plants and hang them upside down in a garage for about a week.) Then pick the pods and allow them to air dry for 1 - 2 weeks. The peanuts can then be stored in the "raw" stage, or can be roasted. To roast peanuts in the shell, put them on a cookie sheet in a single layer in a 300 degree oven for 30 to 40 minutes. Or, remove the shells and roast the peanuts in a 300 degree oven for 20-30 minutes.
