I got an artichoke! Now what?

I live in the desert and just got a baby artichoke plant. I've planted it in a big planter box by itself to let it get a little height before adding anything else to the box. Does anyone have any tips for growing and harvesting? I kind of got it on a whim because I love artichokes and we're trying to grow a little more of our food instead of buying all of it. I'd love to add some herbs to the box if it will work. Thoughts? Suggestions? Feelings?
