Cucumber plants not well

Cucumber    None Given

I live in Dubai and I am new to gardening. I have Cucumbers among other plants and I eat from my plant when it was on the ground 3 nice cucumbers. 3 weeks ago I got a thrips, then one week later I added much needed fertilizers and then things started to go south. (don't know if its the thrips or the fertilizer or the heat) I added cow manure, calcium to the soil and calcium to the leaves, sea weed to the soil and to the leaves and some Epsom Salt a week after fertilizers. The plant gets good sun but there is a big tree that offers some protection during parts of the day, but all in all I guess it gets 4-5 hours direct sun. The PH of the soil is 7 and the soil is mostly moist most of the time.

What is happening?

Dear Kareem, There seems to be a mite injury and you seem to have added extra doses of fertilizer. Stop adding fertilizer and give it good amounts of fresh water and treat the spider mites.

Thanks Asem, how can I treat the spider mites organically?

Spider mites are considered a serious pest on cucumber crop and their control is difficult in case of severe injury. If you do not want to use pesticides to combat them, you can use agricultural spray oils that can reduce the injury somewhat
