I've been having these 2 cucumber plants for almost about 2 months now and I transplanted them onto the ground in the begging of the month (June) which they seemed to do fine for 3weeks until now , there leaves turned spotty yellow and one of the plants has white dusty leaves. What does this mean? Could it be too much sun? They get 13 hours of sun a day which they seem to like And for there age shouldn't they be taller and producing fruit? Cuz mine hasn't produce any but one on each plant. I'm a beginner so hopefully someone can help me out, thanks

Remember to water well (keep the soil consistently moist), fertilize, and give them a wee bit of shade in the hottest part of the day.

White dust, is probably mildew. In early morning, spray with hose to wash off. Dont get foliage wet at nite.
Looks like there in pots, or have some kind of a barrier around them. Not good. Get rid of barrier. Need more water. Put, a little manure, in circle, from 6 to 12 inches from them. Make furrow, around 8 inches from plants. Then top 12 or more inches, from plant out, with compost, to keep soil cool.

Oh !!! Your plants and soil, are burning up. 👺

Philipwonel; thanks I will wash that out this morning & see how it does. I normally water at night or late evening when the sun isn't hitting the plant but I only get the soil wet with water/fish fertilizer every day. The soil isn't dry it's just the top base of it. I always like to check it's good by removing the mulch on top of it and an inch of the soil around it. They have good soil mixed with my made compost and chicken manure, you can't see it because it's underneath the dry soil that's been layering on top & The one with the large barrier seems to have no problem like the other one, seems like it keeps the water in for more time. I think it might just be the 90-100 degree weather we've been having in cali but it's starting to cool down & the plants seem to be producing some fruit

The white could be sun scald but otherwise the plant does have some sort of cucumber fungal disease. Simply let it grow and bear as much fruit as it can. When it gets too bad you will have to pull the plant.
