I think the leaves have just dried up a bit, they don't like bright sunshine and dry heat, preferring some shade and more humid conditions.
Can you rig up some bubble wrap/fleece around their area, but not actually touching them - just to give them more diffused light and keep the area more humid. Watering the soil or leaving trays of water around them, would help with humidity.

I'll try doing that ... the tomato & pepper plants alongside them are flourishing ... so surprised how bad these went.

Don't be... cucumbers are a law unto themselves and many gardeners think they may in fact be pre-programmed to self-destruct! I hope MoS's advice helps your survive
