I was trying to "listen" to you in an Australian accent as I was reading! My mom-in-law, who forgot more about growing than I'll probably ever know, swore by moon phase planting...and showed me convincing examples.
Well, I am stuck with it now. I can't say I have fully tested it, but I can't go back to ignoring the moon anymore. Following the moon gives me a routine to follow & a timetable that keeps me active. That is the least it offers I reckon.
