curling cucumbers

I live in Brooklyn, NY i planted burbless cucumbers in a large planter..I am using bamboo trellis to guide them to grow straight, but the cucumbers themselves are growing and curling into circles.Why aren't they growing straight?

This is a common problem with cucumbers, especially in pots. They do this because they aren't getting a consistent source of water. It means you should mulch your pots as much as  you can to keep the soil moisture consistent. Watering and drying will cause this to happen."
