It seems there’s not enough room between the hose connections to get my hands in there to tighten them. So, instead of marching off to the tool shed every time I change out hoses, I dedicated a channel locks specifically for hoses. Sadly, the poor little dude is rusting rapidly.
Other paraphernalia hangs out under the spigot, too. Also a volunteer chive plant.(?)
My old rusty mailbox and a stand from a former bird bath to the rescue.
I painted them with Rustoleum 2X. Cut a piece of treated plywood to mount the mailbox to the post and voila.
Aww. Tools all cozy and dry.
