I shot a YouTube Video on Yellow Cucumber Leaves and Magnesium.

A general yellowing of the bottom leaves of cucumbers can be caused by a magnesium deficiency. Cucumbers are heavy feeders and can deplete the soil of nutrients. Epsom Salts are an easy way to add magnesium back into your cucumber's diet. It will fix yellow leaves. It also won't hurt the plant if the yellowing is caused by another issue. I included the original video and below that is the picture of the cucumbers 7-10 days later. They are doing great!
