The battle of the soil is about to begin. The gardening partner is itching to get out his spade and turn over the vegetable garden; I'm cautioning him that it's too soggy and too soon. You've heard this before, either from me or in your own house. "Those peas," the partner says, "should be in the ground by St. Patrick's Day. " For years, we've turned over our hillside vegetable garden in the fall, then sowed winter rye as a cover to hold the soil from eroding and to provide green manure to turn into the ground the following spring.

If Hillary Rodham Clinton has her way, peas - not broccoli - will be the anti-veggie of the Clinton administration. During taping yesterday of a segment for TV's Sesame Street - to air Nov. 22 - the script called for her to urge Big Bird and Rosita to "eat your broccoli, string beans and green peas. " But between takes, Clinton suggested that the director substitute apples for green peas. "You could go . . . 'broccoli, string beans and apples' because hardly anybody likes peas," she said.

Spring and summer is the season for one of the sweetest, crunchiest peas around: The sugar snap pea. The pea growers in Idaho developed this cross between the green pea and the snow pea in 1978, so it hasn't been around that long. This is a totally edible veggie, folks - no strings attached here. They're so sweet the children will love eating them for snacks and they won't even realize they're getting a healthy doses of Vitamin C at the same time. At the market, select plump, small peas with an even green color.

AS I WAS WATCHING the news the other day, I saw two people being interviewed by reporters - Moammar Gadhafi and Charlie Sheen. After the interviews, I started thinking about these two characters, and I came to the conclusion that these two are cut from the same mold. They are both in denial about the truth going on around them. They need to put these two clowns in a hospital or crazy house. Gregory Betancourt Philadelphia

To their detractors, the Black Eyed Peas are a soulless hit machine, mechanically churning out chart-topping singles with subtext as shallow as a sideways CD. Their sold-out show at the Wachovia Center on Wednesday night seemed designed in part to answer their critics, not with a defense of their integrity but with a hearty "So what?" As the group's four vocalists emerged from a haze of green smoke, a robotic face on the screen behind them ran down a list of the show's components, as if it were an old PC booting up, step by step, and each Black Eyed Pea were just a subroutine within a giant computer program.

Yo, Chefs! My wife and I had what has to be the best-tasting black-eyed-pea soup ever made, at the Down Home Diner in the Reading Terminal Market. Please tell us how it's made. Richard Battle Philadelphia Dear Richard, The Down Home Diner was opened by chef/owner Jack McDavid 10 years ago. His menu is heavily influenced by his Virginia country background, modified by his classic chef training, including a stint at Le Bec-Fin. What's the secret to Jack's Black-Eyed Pea Soup?

Ever since many of us can remember, a common accompaniment for the meat at dinner has been peas and carrots. All too often this side dish was not particularly exciting. Usually it consisted of mushy carrot cubes and grayish-green peas. In the process of canning, their colors were muted and their texture became soft and tired. Frozen peas and carrots did not produce excellent results, either. However, peas and carrots can be a lively combination. My favorite formula is to combine fresh carrots with sugar snap peas.

Like many twins, Daniel and David Young were extremely close, and neighbors said that if they saw one, they would see the other. But, said neighbors, the Young family was really a threesome - the 8-year- old twins and their mother, Darcell. "They were real close - they did everything together," said Lula Moyer, who lives across the street from the Young family on Indiana Avenue near 20th Street in North Philadelphia. "She was the type who was really into her kids. " Neighbors said the twins' mother often took the children with her when she left the house, even if it was only for a short trip to the store.

For the BEP, there's BF and AF. That is, in the career of the Black Eyed Peas, there are two distinct stages: Before Fergie and After Fergie. Before singer Stacey Ferguson joined the will.i.am-led group, which headlines at the Wachovia Center on Wednesday on a bill that includes Atlanta rapper Ludacris, the Peas were a politically conscious alt-rap band with little commercial success. Then in 2003, Fergie came on board, lending her apple pipes to the international hit "Where Is the Love?"

When Susan Lore got married 33 years ago, her husband told her there was only one food he would never eat: split pea soup. So when she mentioned testing it for our cooking class last week, she was surprised at his response: "Everything you've made for that class so far has been so good," he said. "I want to try it. " And after they had it for dinner? Split pea is now his favorite soup. "So you see," said the fifth-grade teacher at Wiggins Prep in Camden who is helping with the healthy cooking classes, "even grown-ups can change.

The vegan food and juice revolution that's been a rising "fast-casual" wave in Philadelphia is starting to make some ripples at the Shore. Greens & Grains in Ventnor cooks hearty and flavorful plant-based meals-to-go at its month-old little storefront, from tomatoey coconut-curried lentils over rice to cool soba salad and surprisingly good faux meatballs made from eggplant and tofu. Juices and salads, though, are G&G's sweet spot. The vivid purple Coco Glow smoothie (bananas, berries, coconut)

LOTS OF health-focused juicers and smoothie machines were frothing up kale, pineapple, cucumber, spinach, mint and lemon-juice concoctions at the International Housewares Show, which ended yesterday in Chicago. But only one offered a royal chat and photo op with the most regal of weight-obsessed celebrities - Sarah Ferguson - the former spouse (till 1996) of Britain's Prince Andrew and still/forever the Duchess of York. "I didn't believe it till I tried it," Fergie whispered in this ear about the Fusion Xcelerator, a $99 liquefier, pulverizer and micro-emulsification system she's now touting in infomercials and on her poshly designed website - duchessdiscoveries.com.

Plant peas and tomato seeds this weekend. Because peas take about two months from seed to harvest, early April is the latest you can plant them and still get good results. Peas like cooler temperatures, so plant them outdoors in the ground or in a container that's about 12 inches deep. I chose edible-pod Burpee 'Super Snappy' Pea this year, based entirely on the claim that they would produce huge peas, something I can't wait to taste. As for those tomato seeds, there's no time to waste.
