I just planted some spinach and arugula seeds in some raised beds far from the house. Is it too early to hook up the hose to water them? I’m Zone 5 in the Hudson Valley and last frost isn’t til mid May…
Frost won’t cause a hose or hose bib to freeze and break, it needs to be really cold, so you should be fine. We have turned our hoses on (I also live in zone 5 in the Hudson Valley).
