In answer to your question about watering please tell me first where you are and are they all growing outside? But the easy answer is to simply try to assess how dry the soil is by digging down a few inches/centimetres. Always important to water deeply rather than giving small amounts. As to weeds thistles are perennials and deep rooted so cutting the tops off will only work if you are very regularly. Best to try and dig down deeply to get as much root out as possible. Never allow weeds to go to seed and try not to disturb the soil too much the more you do that the more you'll bring up a fresh crop of seeds. Weeding doesn't take long and I always find it very satisfying

Maybe your cucumber seeds were too old or perhaps the slugs or snails got them
