Colonial Delaware based it's econmy on trade, farming, and

natural resources. Some of its major crops were grain, flax,

vegetables, and fruit. The people of Delaware used the powere from

streams to power their mills, which ground the wheat and rye into

flour. Many people's jobs included ship building, iron works,

trading, fishing, and lumber and timber industries
