I started all of my garden plants in flats so that the freeze wouldn't kill them. A fungus has appeared on them. They're not dead, however, what should I do and what could be the cause?

Ah, the cool, humid air of spring, full of promise and...mold spores! Yes, it's true, mold and fungi love the moderate temps and moist air this time of year. You can discourage them by watering less and/or increasing air circulation and light in the seedstarting area. A small fan is enough to get air moving and dry the soil surface enough to do the trick.
