Another thing you can consider is growing edible mushrooms.

Improvise! Fancy packaged solutions might look nice, but the basics of potted plants or hydroponics can be put together inexpensively. You need a container or two the width of the window, some stakes if the plants grow tall. For hydroponics, a simple pump and tube system using aquarium or pond equipment.
