How would you rather spend your Sunday morning? Traipsing around Tescos? Or foraging for free food in a pine forest? This is the mushroom season and we spent this morning picking ceps, otherwise known as porcini and other edible fungi. This is the real slow life food, perfectly in season and what’s more – free. We were taught the art of mushroom picking by Peter Pastucha who couldn’t believe the English indifference to this amazing crop. In his native Poland families will be up at dawn and the woods will be full of foragers. Here we didn’t see a single other soul all morning. The picture is of our daughter Sara holding some ceps with the wood in backround and some of our pigs in between.
