How much do I cut back my heirloom tomato plants so that they might regrow and produce in the fall?

Thank you!

We cut them all the way down, as close to the ground as possible but we always leave a few leaves because it seems to help the plant regrow better that way.

Thank you for your reply, Dave.
I had relistened to podcast #66, I think, when you and Trish were discussing this. I just wanted to make sure I understood about cutting the plant so far back.
Thanks again for
