I am about an hour north of you in the "hill country." It has been dry, but then I am in a suburban area where people water lawns. The area has lots of flowering ornamentals, escaped privet trees, and tallow trees. There are mesquite groves nearby too.
I will probably have 3 or 4 , 8-frame supers of honey from 3 hives. I have been building frames and boxes as fast as I can to keep them from overcrowding.
I am pretty happy with the output for my first spring. I learned a lot.
[EDIT: Went through all the hives and I only have 2 supers of honey because it got spread out due to lack of queen excluders or putting them on too late. ]
