I plant a mixture of both. If I had to choose only one, it would be purple tops. They love the turnips after the tops are gone.

Unless you planted on the side of a hill, it’s very unlikely the seed got washed away. I wouldn't expect much growth if re-planted at this point.

Yep, it’ll be there next year if it takes that long to rain. Worst case scenario is getting rain to let it germinate and then getting no rain to keep it going.

Cow corn, that's a new one. :D Can you define "small"? Small batches of either type of corn typically don't make it because of coons and deer. Field corn is the best choice, no doubt.
