Definitely add some holes for ventilation to so a bright sunny day doesn't cook them.  My advice for staking them...  Buy some chain link fence ties.  They are cheap and come with a hook at one end and are about 8 inches long.  Stick them through the lip of the container...envision like you were staking a tent down.  You'll have full advantage of the sun.  Although the brick idea would also provide some radiant heat for the plants during the night which would be beneficial but they would also either block the sun if placed on top or use up more planting room if placed around the base.

Make some holes in the plastic for air and place an appropriate sized board over multiple plastic covers with a rock on each end OR rocks on each cover if the plastic is heavy enough OR if the plastic has a lip you can put bricks on each side to hold down...very manageable.

Also, forgot to add, those work well inside when starting seeds inside for spring garden planting. Start your seeds in small pots or flats and cover with the plastic tub.

Those work well for mini greenhouses. We use a lot of gallon milk cartons when we set out our tomatoes plants in a similar fashion. Just use a rock for weight or make a small trench around and bury them partially. Your lettuces and spinach are cool season growing anyway. When we're done with the milk cartons, we put them on a string and hang them in the shed to use next year. Hope this helps. Any further questions, let me know.
