I'm in z5 southern Maine. I want to plant some burpee sugar snap peas and some oregon sugar pod 11. I think I'm a little late. But I have never grown peas before. Can I plant them now, or should I just wait for a fall crop. Thanks. filix

Check with your state's Extension Service. Each county should have it's own Cooperative Extension Office which provides free publications and information for the asking. They will have valuable vegetable/gardening tables available specifically for your area determined by universities, and horticultural research scientists who have collected data from growing those crops in your state. Your tax dollars are already paying for this service so you may as well get some use out of it.

See how detailed these examples are:

Vegetable Planting and Planning Calendar for Missouri (download the pdf) complete with spring and fall planting dates (underneath the spring planting dates for appropriate crops), how much to plant per person, etc. They can also tell you the average last frost date for your area and ideal planting times for specific crops and varieties in your area.
