The results are in and this summer’s winner in the taste department is an heirloom tomato, pink Brandywine. A close second is the ‘Beefmaster’ in the full-size tomato race. Plenty of sun and warm temperatures have helped produce a bountiful garden this summer.

A day's harvest. Pink Brandywine tomato is the one just to the left of the raspberries. Note the fluffy cosmos, 'Doubleclick' from Renee's Garden Seeds.

Top cherry tomato is the ‘Sungold,’ a golden honey of a sweet nugget (at left of picture). But there are plenty of choices out there, including ‘Chocolate’ and ‘Black Cherry’ tomatoes and bright red ‘Sweet 100.’
