Harness garden snails to do the gardening for you

This is a small plough attached to a yoke that sticks to the shells of a team of garden snails. The yoked snail team can then be set loose to wander round the flower bed leaving a neat furrow behind them.

Best deployed in a small area enclosed by the snail-discouraging metallic tape you can get to put round flowerpots, lest they make a break for freedom and your lettuces...

       I quite this variation, as I'm always keen to see our friends in the animal kingdom given meaningful (and meaningless) tasks. [+]

       Most gardeners I know wouldn't classify snails as "harmless," but you'd have to ask them for the gory details.

       Shuck'm if they can't take a yoke.   

       Good one [2 Fries].
