Shriveled Blueberries, what happened?

Asked June 27, 2016, 9:24 AM EDT

I have two bluecrop blueberry bushes. They are about 3-4 years old. The berries did not get very big this year and almost look wrinkly. What happened?

Looks like they ran out of water. one of the shoots in the background looks shriveled as well, and it looks like shoot growth stopped quickly. Are you irrigating? How much rain have you gotten in the last month? We had a lot of water early but it has been pretty dry in some areas since. I would expect some browning on the tips of some of the leaves if it was drought. Can you send a picture of the plants so I can get a sense of overall growth.
