Tips for student 'window garden?'

Hiya everyone,

I am a fresh new 'gardener' and am at University. With limited space and resources, I have designed the following set-up to grow Basil, Parsley, Chives, Coriander, Spring Onions, Carrots, and radish!

There are 2 radishes in each pot at the back, 6 spring onions on the left, herbs in the center and 4 carrot seeds in the right pot.

I am using standard fruit&veg compost from B&Q and seeds of eBay. (Apologies for the image lighting)


I was wondering what tips would you have for me as a beginner or plant ideas do you think I could grow on my window? (I have a decent 12 hours of strong sun right now in summer) and most of the time throughout other seasons as the sun rises on my side.
