But you don't know if it makes no difference unless you keep an "anti-moon gardening diary". I'd like to garden by the moon but like you say it's a question of having time when the weather is right. In France they give away free gardening by the moon calendars in the local gardening shops, so if a whole nation follows it, there must be something in it - mustn't there? Don't answer! Anyway for all we know if we did do everything right and followed the moon maybe the leeks would be 2 inches diameter, really tasty and tender and th tomatoes wouldn't succomb to blight - who knows unless soemone volunteers to split their garden in two - full moon and new moon.
