toiletCaption on the magpie: “Camera on the move” captured this huge ‘tooke’ growing by the perimeter wall in an engineer’s home in Kampala City. As an “urban farming scheme” he has nominatively used the science and technology of mixing one portion of urine with three of water to produce a wonderful natural nutrient/fertilizer for the banana.  Simple: He and all males under his roof urinate in a 20-liter jerry can instead of the WC. With the jerrycan one-third (1/3) full, they fill it with water. They then sprinkle the urine-water fertilizer sparingly around the banana stem and wait for sweet results: a big bunch of bananas for the livelihood of the family!
