can I make my outlet a half hot, for disposal to switch and always on dishwasher

Forgive my nasty and archaic looking wiring, 100yr old house.
For years, there was a 2 outlet receptacle under the sink, with only my disposal plugged in, that is powered by a SWITCH on the wall by sink, so outlet is always off, unless you hit the switch.
I want to do one of these HALF HOT outlets, sounds like its as simple as breaking the TAB on the outlet. I watched some youtube videos, looks simple enough-BUT, my wiring doesnt look like any of the wires on the videos.

Question is, with my wiring setup, can I do this half hot?

half hot possible?
