Peas - falling over, staking required?

My dwarf pea plant is falling over. I have put in a bamboo stake but am worried that I may have damaged the roots due to the densely packed soil material. Has anyone else had to do this? Should I plan to do this for my tomatoes as well?

I’ve used chop sticks to stake many of the plants in the last 2 years with no problem. One of the other growers put several around his lavender.

Shish kebab thin wooden skewers. I used that.

Where I live we have something shorter. We call it satay sticks. Similar to kebab sticks but shorter.
