My cucumbers are turning yellow and dying off when they first begin setting. Could I be watering too much - I water every morning for about 15 minutes with an overhead sprinkling system. I am having some trouble with my squash in the same way. :oops:

I would water once or twice a week more thoroughly. Plants tend to like infrequent drenching rather than topical frequent watering. When you water frequently in small amounts, much of the water evaporates from the ground surface, and the root system doesn't get as much benefit
Are the plants themselves dying, or is the fruit not setting adequately.

I water my cucs every other day, unless we receive rain, like last night. I have harvested 13 off of 2 plants so far.
