I live in southern WI and I planted a mix of oats and some brassicas about a 10 days ago. We got a heavy rain and I went back today to check it out, some of the brassicas arr coming up, but a majority of the oat seeds are uncovered and on the surface now, with very few plants growing. 
My problem now is that I have no equipment and borrowed a buddy’s to put my plot in, but I don’t have access to it again this fall. What can I do?!

Those seeds should germinate unless you bought something with low germ rate, or a year or two old seed that has been reduced to 20-30% germination. You can also broadcast rye/wheat over-top the growing brassicas to salvage the food plot.
