We have 2 of our blueberry bushes that the fruit that's coming on them are starting to turn brown and cumble as well as the end of the stem they are growing on. What's the problem and how do we correct it?

Sounds like a fungal infection. Shoot blight and mummyberry are terms often used to describe the symptoms. A fungicide will help control the problem. I'd prune off the affected stems and berries and spray the blueberry plants with a fungicide such as Captan to protect the healthy leaves and stems. Hope this controls the problem for you.
