When the pilgrims first moved to North America, the whole community planted in the same field and would share the crops. Which led to shortage of food. But then they were allowed to have their own private garden which they worked harder on and that led up to a surplus of food, therefore, they were able to survive.

What was the effect of Charles I's persecution of the puritans?
Acting on the advice of his religious advisor Archbishop William Laud, Charles 1 (King of Scotland, England and Ireland from 1600-1649) persecuted all Puritans and religious dissidents in the realm. The Puritans opposed Laudâ??s directives to restore religious rites and other Catholic practices. It led to the emigration of Puritans to North America, and they were the first occupants of Massachusetts Bay Colony.
