Ripe blueberries fall off bush

We live in east Tn and we have many ripe berries that fall off the bushes. Any suggestions on how to catch them? We tried plastic tarps under bushes one year, but wondered if there is a drop cloth that is mesh so they water can get thru?

Why have my blueberries stayed white, small and dropped off even though they have been fed and watered through the heatwave we've had? Some turned green but no blue and didn't even produce a hand full of them.

Pod like growth on bush

I have a few 4 year old bushes behind my house. They have a number of pod like growths. Kind of like a curled pea pod about 2 inches but curled. They start out green then turn dark with a wood like consistency. They look like they have round marbles inside. Any idea what they are. The green one in pic is this year and the dark is a year old one
