Keith, that is a bummer, there is so much work to getting seeds going, but don't give up, set them again, determined gardeners get excellent results, you are determined.  Have that beautiful and great day, Cindi

you probably didn't lose them.  you'll find them washed into clumps in low spots.  happens to me all the time when i reseed pastures and then we get dumped on.
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called the government. They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

I take it you sowed them directly into the soil?  I have learned that starting them in yogurt cups gives me an excellent opportunity to save them from such disasters until they are big enough to take it.  I still occasionally lose them when I forget to bring them in... but it still saves more than the other way.

Good luck getting the new set going.  I just started germinating a packet of them myself... there's still plenty of time for them to mature, so don't worry too much.  It's only a couple bucks worth of seeds (unless you have whole fields of them).
