We have been getting heaps of blackberries from the too-many bramble patches on our land. This was our first meal of them. Since then, we have had blackberry cheesecake (to die for) lots of jam (of varying consistencies) blackberries on icecream, and so on.
I also caught my first swarm of bees and managed to get them safely hived. Since then, unfortunately, they seem to have run into trouble, so I have just ordered a replacement queen.
Our grandson, Aidan, was down for a month or so and did a brilliant job of helping me with fencing and building a goatshed with a reciprocal roof. The picture here shows the poles for the incomplete shed.
