Pea Plants are Dying

I'm having trouble with my pea plants. They are about 5 to 8 inches high right now. A few plants have lost almost all color, without any wilting. They just shrivel up to nothing and die overnight. I'm wondering what this could be. I started with high pH (above 7.5), but lowered to about 6.5 before planting.

Sounds like it might be calcium deficiency. The symptoms of calcium deficiency are more pronounced and appear earlier in most plants than if the soil is deficient in other elements. The symptoms are they lose their color and the plant dies prematurely. If that is the problem, adding small amounts of calcium to the water when you fertilize should correct the situation.

I could be cut worms cutting the roots off. Look at the root, good luck.
