Within a weeks time my cukes went from vibrant green to nearly dead looking. I didn't see any bugs but my eyes are also terrible. I have already dusted with seven dust just in case it is bugs of some sort. But it has only been 24 hours.

Welcome!

They are getting sunburned. Did you harden them off (introduced them slowly to bright outside light and weather) before you planted?

It's been cloudy for most of the day for the last week. Had a northern blow in and lots of cloud cover. They were outdoors at the nursery I,got them at and have been in the ground a month.

Maybe it was the wind. Did it get cold too?

Wind, temperature, insects, viruses, fungi. Can you get a better picture?

I would also like to add as of right now the stalks seem unaffected.
