When is it too soon to feed syrup vs. fondant or sugar? Days are getting warmer (40s F), but it's still cold at night. Bees have been out in the past couple of days, but snow is coming again. Honey stores are okay now, but they'll go fast.

IMO, if it is below freezing at night, it is too early for syrup. If you need to feed before the nights warm up use granular sugar, crystallized honey, or fondant.
