A little window box won't provide enough salad greens to make more than a couple of salads. A less expensive way to grow a lot more salad greens is to use plastic guttering. Cut in 4 ft. lengths, put caps on the ends, add soil and plant. If you have several gutters, plant them one week apart to lengthen harvest time, and instead of pulling out the plants as you harvest, use scissors (but don't cut off the new smaller leaves) and the plants will grow more leaves which you can harvest later.

You mentioned temperature, but how much sun do salad greens need?
