Hi figleaves - who told you that peas are easy? Mice will eat the seeds and slugs will eat the shoots - but maybe you don't have mice and slugs But whatever you grow there will be trials and tribulations - part of the fun of gardening so don't let me put you off.
The best way to start is to grow something you like to eat - that gives you a sense of purpose. So if you like peas, which sort do you like? Ordinary garden peas that you take out of the pods, or the types where you eat the pods as well like mange tout and sugar snap?
What's your veg patch like? How much room have you got? Some peas grow quite tall and needs lots of support from canes and netting - other varieties are not so tall and not quite so demanding of support.
Lots of info here to have a look at http://www.bbc.co.uk/gardening/basics/techniques/growfruitandveg_growingpeas1.shtml
and please don't hesitate to come back and ask us lots more questions.
There's nothing as rewarding as eating something you've grown.
