Q.

What Do I Do If I Planted Too Many Seeds Per Starter Tray.

I put too many seeds per hole in a starter tray and now I have a lot of cabbage seedlings growing out of each hole. Is this a bad thing and if so how can I fix it?

You need to thin them out to one healthy stem per hole. Snip the weak ones off at soil level.
