how did geography play a part in the colonies becoming so different from each other?

Geography played a important part in the 13 colonies, for example New England ( Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode island, Connecticut ) they had harsh weather so they had to make a living off of farming. But the middle colonies ( New York, Pennsylvania, Delaware, and New Jersey ) had it better because the soil was rich in minerals, so it was better to mine. Also the Southern colonies had it way easier because the discovery of tobacco and they had so much land that some pioneers had up to 100 acre plots of land.
