Your cucumbers look fine as I can see flowers on them, I can't see any flowers on the tomatoes, but they may be there. It depends on the variety really as to when they will star to flower and form fruit. Just keep on watering.

Have you had any flowers on your toms yet ? What part of the uk are you in?

Have you been pinching out your tomatoes? They look very bushy or is that the variety.
Mine have only just set their first or second trusses (groups of tomatoes) so it might not be too late. I think all of that rain may have delayed growth - it certainly had on mine.
Don't give up!

What does it mean pinching the tomatoes ?

Sorry - basically pulling out side shoots so your plant concentrates on putting it's energy into the fruit rather than more leaves.
Will find a link that'll explain better as don't want you to pinch out any tomato trusses by accident.

Actually perhaps you have a bush variety in which case don't.

I'd put the cucumber plant in a pot at least twice that size. They are hungry, thirsty plants and yours looks a bit anaemic! They like lots of sun too. Chop the top off if it gets very long. Good luck!
