I'm wondering if people can help me with setting up a timetable of when to do what with the colonies. I know this will vary according to when you would start spring feeding, when honeyflow would typically begin, starting/stopping medication (if required) etc but I am trying to get an general guideline which I will fine tune as I gain experience. I am setting up a timetable based on the months of the year. I have found one resource on the internet: http://www.hivetool.com/guide/calendar.htm
but I need to tailer a timetable to where I live (central Alberta).
Any thoughts, pointers or resources would be most welcome.

He seems to have Quite a bit of information on his site and is in Alberta. Jack
