Sugar Snaps - White leaves


Just been checking out the progress of my sugar snaps and most of the leaves have white marks on them, they are not raised, or damaged as faras i can tell and there is no residue etc.

Is this normal or do i have a problem? Pic below.

    They look jolly healthy to me - I can see the marks you refer to - I've not grown peas for a while - I do remember leaves having those marks in the past but I've never thought them to be indicative of a problem and certainly they didn't seem to affect the cropping. 

    Wouldn't worry about it personally image

    Thanks Dove, they do look really healthy, but just wanted to check as frankly i dont know what is good or bad yet.

    My crop of peas have same markings but are healthy and now flowering so as Dove says don't worry.

    If I remember correctly I've had these markings before but usually later in the season when I'm already picking peas, but they continued to produce without problem.
