I agree with Ginger, Corinne.
I agree with Ginger, Corinne. I have not had a cuc grow inside without the older leaves looking like that and then dying off. I don't know why, but it could just be a function of light level. Cuc putting energy into new leaves and fruits. One main issue I had growing cucs in the AG was rapid leaf die out - the container grown cucs seem to be able to produce new leaves/fruit faster than the old leaves die off. Good luck!

The leaves look pretty
The leaves look pretty healthy to me, Corinne. Looks like you're not overwatering, my biggest mistake with young cukes. (Need to let 'em run dry between waterings.) The leaves might appreciate a spritz of water. But in general, growing cukes indoors, I've learned not to expect glossy perfection. When they're older, when they're looking tired after harvesting a while, a little acid fertilizer can revive them. But for now - these look pretty good to me!

One week later update. I am
One week later update. I am seeing a dreaded light green ring forming around the first set of leaves. Anyone know the cause and if there is anything to add which will keep all the leaves healthy?

Looking good, Corinne! FWIW,
Looking good, Corinne!

FWIW, I'd prune the tip off when the vines get 6' long or so. Like, drape them once out and back, then top them to widen instead of lengthen from there. The Jades do grow a very long vine if you let them. But they'll branch if you top them, and have better circulation with a shorter vine. Your mileage may vary, of course.

The Jades are growing nice
The Jades are growing nice and healthy and are getting another set of leaves. Rather than hanging them from the frame with no light , I have opted to let them run back and forth along a wire platform underneath the frame  when the time arises.

Ooh, the Siberian tomato sounds good. Looking forward to seeing that grow!

Yes, Tasty Jades,Ginger. I
Yes, Tasty Jades,Ginger. I also have some toms starting in there which I am removing today to their own pots. One is going into one of the self watering pots I read about in your book and thought I would try since I like the idea of watering from the bottom like the EarthBoxes. That one will be a Siberian Tom which I have never tried before. I notice that every time I water the Tasty Jades, the leaves are so much larger in just a few hours time. The photo I took for this grow log is outdated in just a few hours' time.

Happy little plants. These are Tasty Jade cucumbers, right?

This was planted roughly 
This was planted roughly  around the second week of January.
I have 3 plants started, but will eventually pull 1 because I understand from Beth and Ginger that they va get quite large and take up a lot of room.
They are beginning to get their first true leaves now:
