Answer: Sometimes peas will rot if the soil is too wet. Did you dig around in the soil to see if you could find any seeds? On occasion seed lots can been improperly stored which can affect germination. More likely, however, is that birds found and consumed the seeds before they had a chance to germinate. To discourage wildlife from feasting on seeds, you might want to try covering the planting area with a floating row cover until the sprouts are several inches high.
