Is it possible that something has eaten my early planted peas? I did not soak them. They were hard when planted. There is absolutely no sign of them when I carefully stroke back the soil; however, there are many soft whitish 'somethings' that look like they could be a covering that may have been on the outside of the peas.

Yes, it is possible that something has eaten your early planted peas. Birds and/or mice are commonly the culprits. My best guess for the "whitish somethings" in your soil is that they were part of the pea seed coating that was shed as the seeds were undergoing germination.
