Cucumbers...odd shaped...is anything wrong?

Last month my cucumbers came in great...I am still getting a good supply from the garden...but I have been noticing some of my cucumbers are misshapen...I've got ones I can actually call a "C" shape. Now I am getting ones with one end smaller than the other...I was wondering if perhaps they are not getting enough water? I've been noticing some of the leaves have started to die off...a crinkly brown edge on some. I thought perhaps that there growing time is about to end? Anyway I would love to know if anyone has had the issue, what it might be, and what do I do to either fix the problem or manage it. Thanks in advance.

  • I think the leaves mean you should water more as for the "C" shape sometimes that happens. I remember every once in a while my mom's cucumbers would do that.
