I'm growing my first garden and I'm growing cucumbers. I'm using Miracle grow Garden soil, my cucumbers are coming out green and turning yellow as soon as they start getting bigger. Am I doing something wrong?

Most likely it is a lack of pollination.

Do you have any male flowers ?
If so. Take small painters paint brush touch inside of male flower .then female flower. Do this back and fourth. It needs to be done in early morning after flowers open.
There Now ! 😁You have just hand polinated. Hurray!
Keep up a few days.
Female flowers have fruit on end, male flowers don't.
Flowers only open one day.

Anything i say, could be misrepresented, or wrong.
