Re: How to budget for feed
You haven't talked dates here but I'm thinking you can do a lot of what you are proposing on a natural honey flow. Early cells in your area, I would think would be around the time (late April too early May) that you might catch a dandelion flow and perhaps clover by mid June . Is there locust in your area? Also, when using cells, remember if there isn't an actively laying queen, feed demands are much lower.
