You really shouldn't need inoculation powder with snow peas. Soaking them for 24 hours in a bowl of water, then laying them out on a damp paper towel should get them started just fine; putting them straight into the ground shouldn't be a problem either.  Only time you'd have to harden them off is if you grew sprouts and let them grow a few inches.

Yup, you do not harden off sprouted seeds.  If you want to use inoculation sprinkle it in the hole in the soil you gently drop your sprouted seed into.

The usefulness of inoculants is going to depend on if that particular strain of rhizobial bacteria is present in your soil, and in a new garden that is easiest to insure by inoculating it.  You can see the root nodules when you pull the spent plants later.  If they do not have the nodules you might consider inoculating next planting.

Here is how I jumpstart my peas.   I place my peas in wet paper towels, fold it up, and put them in a ziplock bag.  I put it right on top of my water heater, and it provides just enough heat to aid the sprouting.  Once I see little sprouts emerging in 2 to 3 days, I plant the seeds in my garden as long as the temperature is above freezing.  If it is too cold, I start a new batch on the water heater.  I've never used inoculant, although I've heard it can help increase the yield.

Germinating the seed and then sowing the newly sprouted ones directly into the garden will not require any form of hardening off, as the plant will grow and be acclimated to its climate.

I, like mikesgardn, just put the seed in a jar overnight with water and leave it on the kitchen counter. The next day I pour off the water and let the jar of wet seeds remind on the counter. I will rinse the seed once or twice a day until they sprout, then I will sow those. I also sow a lot more seed than the final recommendation of plants per square. Pea plants can fail for a variety of reasons so I want more plants in the ground to make sure I get a crop for harvest.

I was just pulling up some finished snow pea plants and harvesting the dried pods. Does anyone know if I can open those pods now and replant the peas immediately? Or do I have to let them dry further and plant them next year?

I have peas coming up,they are about 6 in tall, from peas that fell on the MM at the end of the season. They are coming up among the cukes that I planted after the peas were done, so I guess you can go ahead and plant them!
