Tips for student 'window garden?'

in Fruit & veg
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.

Nasturtiums.... like poor soil so maybe dig up some dirt from outside....and you can eat the flowers. Various cut and come again lettuces. Also you may like this book: https://www.permaculture.co.uk/book-reviews/permaculture-pots-how-grow-food-small-urban-spaces (May be available from a library.) Great ideas for limited budgets and limited space.
Good luck. I love your university garden.
Going to have a read of the article, many thanks!
