I'm on my new homestead and it's full of awesome fruit trees and bushes. But I need a little help identifying some of them. Thanks.

The first is elderberry and the second one is either blackberry or raspberry. You're very lucky to have so many fruits already in place!

The second one had a round smooth, almost black berry on it earlier in the summer. Looked almost like a black grape. And it was very shiny.

#1 Elderberry

#2 Take a look at the various colors of Currants. This one is red: https://guildfordgardencentre.com.au/product/currant-red/

1st plant = Elderberry (95% sure)
2nd plant = looks upright and thornless like a currant vs gooseberry.  it seems too shrubby to be blackberry and the stem is not hairy enough to be raspberry. (Currant, 65% sure I didn't see any of the dried up fruit stems)

The 2nd one might be a black jostaberry. (a currant/gooseberry hybrid). You said that it was like a grape which makes me think the 3x bigger gooseberry compared to the smaller currants.

The second one looks almost identical (though healthier!) to my black currant bush.
 
No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better. This time, do it with this tiny ad:
