A tomato exhibitor Vincent Migadde at the Harvest Money Expo said some Ugandans are just lazy, saying tomatoes can be grown in sacks, baskets and any used plastics at home.
“You may have little or no experience, but you don’t want to study too deeply or do lots of complicated things, save money by growing your own tomatoes in your backyard,” he said.
Migadde while at the expo at Kololo in Kampala said he has employed all his children by equipping them with 4 plants each to take care at their backyard.
“The plants give Shs10000 per week and we also use them at home, this has saved us buying tomatoes since they are a common source in everyday cooking,” he said.
