Map of Middle Colonies
weather and Climate
The climate would be wetlands along the coast along the Hutchinson River
so this region would have been very good for fishing since the colonies are near a river which makes for an easy food supply.
This region has rich soil allowing wheat and other grains to grow which would make for an easy food supply since it grows so well and it will help make the colony money.
The reason summers would be good is it is easy to grow crops and you can easily enjoy fishing.One more reason it would be good is trees grow really easy in this season so you could use the wood as firewood for the winter and you could could use the logs to build a log house.
The reason the cold winters would be good to have is that animals like Deer and other animals will be out looking for grass and other things to eat so it would be a good hunting season.

Agriculture of the middle colonies
They had better soil and farming than England did.
One reason the agriculture is good is because the middle colonies have really good soil so crops grow really good there so that would be a good food supply.
A second reason the agriculture is good is because since the crops grow so good there since grain is a part of the industry you could sell the crops and make money .
