Over the last couple of days I’ve been going into the forest mushroom picking. This is the first year I’ve seen so many high-end mushrooms. It’s all due to the alternating rain storms and scorching ht days. The forest is damp and muddy, with small streams flowing where none have been for years.
Ordinarily we wait for autumn for mushrooms but this year my basket is filled with Boletus edulis, Boletus reticulatus and, from the meadows, Agaricus campestris.
My name is Edward O'Toole and I live in one of the wildest, most beautiful parts of Europe, in the Carpathian Mountains of Eastern Slovakia. Life is an adventure - both physically and metaphysically...
I've been living out here for the last 22 years, along with my wife, 3 kids and Jack Russell.
My main interests involve bushcraft, prepping, survival and wilderness living (self-sufficiency and self-reliance), ecological, green, smart and natural solutions, motorcycles and motorbike club life, writing and art (I have 7 published books), and exploring the paranormal.
