Cucumbers

We planted Japanese cucumbers a couple of weeks ago. The vines appear to be robust; however, some cucumbers at the earliest stage of development are turning yellow. Is there a problem we are not aware of?

This is caused by a pollination problem. You may need to hand pollinate if pollinators are having problems getting to your plants. This can be done swirling a small paintbrush inside a male flower and then swirling the brush inside a female flower. These articles will help with attracting more pollinators to your yard:
