My cucumber plants are really tall and their flowering vines are entwined around a lattice fench. They have like 1/2 inch start of cucumbers on them, but they just have been dormant ever since I planted then two months ago..why so slow??

Although cucumber plants like warm temperatures I think yours have suspended growth because of extremely hot weather. Most plants will just sit and wait patiently for the right temperatures before resuming growth. I suspect that's what is happening with yours. Just keep giving them TLC and when the growing conditions are right they will resume their growth.
