Hello, I have cucumber plants that all of a sudden have black tiny somethings all over the leaves. I would love some help determining what they are and how to get rid of them. Thanks!

Looks like aphids to me also. The fast way to get rid of them would be with Insecticidal Soap - make sure to drench the bottoms of the leaves as well. You will still have to keep watch for signs of re-infestation.

The slow way would be by washing them off with warm soapy water but you will have to repeat daily.
