Hello. Please see picture. Cantaloupe supposed to be getting full Sun, but cucumber plant is shading it. Do I remove the cucumber? Is it too late to transplant the cucumber. I guess I should have thought before putting the cucumber there

Personally, I would pull the melon. It looks like you have just one melon plant, which will produce maybe 2 - 3 cantaloupes. The cucumbers will produce 2 - 3 lbs of cucumbers per vine and it looks like you have at least 4 vines.
