Do I actually need a watering can for my vegetable garden?

First-time gardener here. Hooray—I inherited a half-plot in my neighborhood garden in Boulder, CO! Now I'm wondering if I should invest in a watering can or if I'm okay without.
The plot is about 7'x8' in full sunlight
The garden has several water hose/pump style hookups
The garden also has a big box of borrowable items which includes a hose (I have an attachment at home that has a mist setting)
The person who had the plot before me told me she just used a hose and was fine
Thus far, I've just been using a teacup and a bucket or a pitcher of water
My first plants just emerged and appear to be doing okay
I am on a budget
Is there any reason for me to upgrade to an actual watering can?
