Winter peas planting depth

We’re trying something new with winter peas. We broadcasted and rolled afterwards, and then we got good rain the last few days.

The problem is, the peas are pretty obviously sitting on top, not covered with soil.

1. At this point, would it do any good to drag? Will that do anything to the other seeds like chicory, oats, and radishes?

2. Has anybody ever done alright w winter peas that weren’t drilled or disced in?

I would leave them alone at this stage. Some are probably already sprouting.
Yep and it would break any life off them. It would also cause the soil to go dry and finish killing the seeds that have started to germinate.
