Sugar Snap Peas

Sugar Snap Peas

I'm looking to plant some sugar snap peas, and I'm wondering if anyone here has started them in peat pots instead of directly in the ground. I grew them for the first time last year and as I remember, I just stuck the seeds directly in the ground at about this time and they did really well. I'm not able to do that this year because the community garden where I have a plot is currently in the middle of a renovation project (removing railroad ties that were used as dividers before anyone knew better) and I won't be able to get into my plot to plant anything for another month. I was thinking I'd try starting them in peat pots on my porch and then just stick the whole thing in the ground when I'm able to get into my plot next month. Has anyone had any luck with this? I've heard that sugar snap peas prefer to be direct sown but I figured if I used peat pots that it wouldn't disrupt them too much. Do I need to soak the seeds or anything like that if I'm going to use this method? Thanks for any advice you can give!
loft beds anyone?
