Default Strains for hardiness zone on border of 6 and 7

Iím very close to centrally located in US and am on where 6 and 7 meet and also around a large lake area.
From rainy springs to dry late summers to early frosts.
By just what I have heard and observed mid May to mid October is about good as it gets.Mid May to late September is what Iíd actually plan on but maybe this year no cold fronts will move in until after late October.
Id like to use MNS gear.

Early Queen or Early Skunk

Anything too dense will struggle with mold

Iím at 40 degrees N latitude.
When does bloom actually start outdoors?
Do I go by daylight hours or sunrise to sunset?
If 12 hours of darkness are needed outdoors then itll be September before bloom starts.

Default Critical Mass

I would give Critical Mass a try.

It matures early in the zone you describe.

Also grow one of the early strains, as a fall back, in case of mold.

Although mold shouldn't be a problem because harvest of Critical Mass should come before the rains.

Good luck

Oh and Critical Mass seems to be even better when used in crosses.

If you pick a special mother of Critical Mass and cross it with a male from another beloved strain of yours, the resulting seeds may be very successful.

Early Haze is the one. I tried a few different ones at 39N, midwest US, and that is the one. A few will go to the very end, but the vast majority will finish on time with minimal mold issues and have some lovely early girl/haze smoke which is my favorite. SSH if you are feeling lucky, it can have mold issues, though, and more tend to go a little too long.

I've personally grown Early Haze outdoors for ~6 seasons guerilla style for the most part, minimal prep and minimal maintenance.
