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

Geography played a part in the colonies becoming so different from each other by the New England colonies had plenty of tall trees but they also had harsh rocky soil land, and long dreadful winters. The middle colonies was dutch farm land. With thick harbors, many rivers, and fertile farm lands. The weather here was not as harsh as the weather in New England. The Southern Colonies had the best climate and soil for farming. The land was so thick with vegetation when the colonists first arrived the settlers could only clear about two acres per year. So as you can see they all have different climates, witch means they all had to live different life styles to cope with their geography.
