A Square Foot Garden Flourishes in Early Spring

We are lucky in Utah and having a very mild and early spring. I pulled my lettuces, spinach and cilantro out of my green house (that I managed to keep alive all winter) and planted them in my 4 x 4 box outside. This is probably the earliest I've ever had these growing outside so well. Sugar Peapod seeds are planted nine per square. The little white tent is a picnic cover I found at Big Lots. I tacked them down and they are great for protecting my small broccoli, kale  and cauliflower seedlings from the hungry birds.

I love spring gardening because it's cool outside and there is a lot of rain to do the watering. I just water by hand because it doesn't need to be done very often. Are you doing any spring gardening?
