Which edible plants grow well in window sill pots?

Question by wood_vulture: Which edible plants grow well in window sill pots?
I am looking for plants that will do well in the partial shade of east-facing, west-facing and south-facing window sills. Don’t limit your answers based on “the pot wouldn’t fit on a window sill.” I have not yet put in the window-sill-as-a-bathroom-shower-curb/”>window sills, I can make ’em three feet wide if I feel like it.

I am looking for plants that are:

1. Edible. Just wanna make sure we’re all on the same page.
2. Nutritious. If the leaves are full of potassium or calcium or something, I want to hear about it.
3. If those are satisfied, and it’s tasty too… I was gonna say “Sweet!” but that would be a little redundant.

Thanks in advance.

the easiest items to grow in a window box are herbs, chives, parsley, thyme, sage, oregano ect..
if you like tea you can grow different mints – they need there own pot since they take over whatever container they are in.
if you want a flower and edible you can go with lavender, vanilla and cloves which you will get a great smell from, they are pretty and edible.
