So into my second season of sfg, my cucumbers started strong but lately they are looking bit pale, was a nice solid green but has started yellowing

Pest / Nutrional deficiency/ or what have you

Any advice highly appreciated

Curling cucumbers (and other fruits) due to uneven pollination.

Turning green to pale = past prime Usually. Could be the heat. Try it to see if it is turning bitter.

If you had a nitrogen deficiency, which is the most common nutritional deficiency we encounter, then  would expect the leaves to be turning yellow before the fruit turned yellow.  I agree with Sanderson that this is most likely past it's prime.

The leaves look good; I agree with sanderson, yellowing fruit are old and past prime as far as harvesting.  I’d get them off there as they will “turn the plant off” so to speak.

Again, the currying fruit are an indication of poor pollination. Do you have any flowering plants near the cukes?  Might help!
