My pickling cucumbers are greenish yellow and slightly gold. I had to go away for a week and my husband did not see the cucumbers on the vines. Can I pickle them or compost them?
Unless the cucumbers have become mushy, they make fine pickles even if they're a bit yellow. If they're soft, however, you'll want to compost them. This article has more detail about what to look for:
We're in for another summer of most days over 100 degrees. My squash and cucumbers look great in the early morning and wilted every afternoon. Will they produce any fruit? I water deeply every other day.
Unfortunately, until the heat breaks, you may be faced with poor growth and production!
Sometimes, a shade cloth during the hottest portion of the day can help:
Days old with zero cucumber production. Thoughts?? Photo will not download
Early flowers are often just males. You should get females soon. If pollinators are scarce, you may need to help the pollination along. Here is how:

Hi I am very new gardener and for the first tine I have planted 4 cucumber plants. Out of the four two are thriving,one has one cumcumber and the other has none.not sure why that might be. If you could tell me. My main question is why are my leaves showing as if they have no life in them..they look really droopy. I have about 10 cucumbers which are approx 15-20cm so looking good...me thinks. The picture shows that the leaves are droopy or dead. Why is that? Am I feeding it too much water or not feeding it something else which I should. Or does it need more water? Please help..thanks in advance.
It may just be the angle of the photo, but the containers look very small. Vegetables in containers need room to grow. They also will need more water in a small container. There could be a pollination problem for the ones without cucumbers.

Hi! It’s my first year doing cucumbers in Phoenix the last 2 weeks we have had record rainfall and my leaves have a strange pattern in them now? Is this a diseased plant? Thanks for any help!
No, it's not a disease. It's leafminers. They tunnel through the plant and leave these unsightly scars. Here is more:
