Fallacies of the Harvest Moon

From the Old Farmer’s Almanac:

Gardeners and farmers can take advantage of the moonlight at this time of year and continue their day’s work in harvesting crops.

Really? Is anyone in modern times in the United States really using the extra light of the moon to harvest crops? I realize of course that the Almanac doesn’t specify where said “gardeners and farmers” live but given the audience of the Almanac it’s an educated guess on my part 🙂 I’m all for passing on lore but c’mon.
