I may be in trouble
I was testing some cucumber seeds with my grow this year, and noticed some yellowing of their leaves, no ferts, normal watering. got to looking and it appears this could be "CMV" cucumber mosaic virus.

Pictures included

is it possible that this has spread to my other plants?

Have you been putting them in direct sunlight?

I alternate between indoor lights and sunlight from a window.

I've moved them (all cucumber plants) outside to let die. It's not worth messing up my entire grow for the year.

if anyone has any experience with this, does this look like CMV, or something i should be concerned with and do you think it has already infected my other plants?

Some of those pictures looked a little bit like sunburn to me. That is why I asked about direct sunlight exposure. If they were not exposed to a sudden dose of sunlight after being under lights, then it probably isn't that.

No experience here.
Try fertilizing one or two, see what happens.

It's often hard to guess because it could mean a number of things and sometimes until it reaches a certain stage then you truly will know by how the plant is affected.

The closest I found to the pic you posted is Gummy Stem Blight

thismembername from the picts you have on your link I would have to say you have Downy mildew. It is common with cucumber plants and there is almost no stopping it once it sets in. Cucumbers don't like to be planted in pots or in peat since yours are in both and they are just starting out I would dispose of them in the trash not the compost pile. At the first signs of seeing downy mildew you can spray them with diluted milk, neem oil, or any other fungicide.
Well on the bright side, cucumbers grow very quickly so there's always time plant more.

I grow alot of cucumbers and pickle like 40 mason jars a year.

If you need any cucumber seed let me know..

Eric
