I don't have any pictures of the sad hive to share - I'll ask Jon when he gets in if he took any.
Does anyone know of any San Antonio or Austin areas beekeepers that sell organic queens? Hit me up with a comment if you do.

It's been blazing hot this summer & the girls little pond has gone dry. Fortunately we made a trip out to fill it back up & we have neighbors with live stock to water.
Our poor hive of naughty girls seems to be surviving despite the set back of having to cut out a large chunk of brood.
They have a ways to go still to fill out the rest of their deep box home, but the queen is still laying & the girls are keeping it clean.
