I've been having a lot of issue this year with my blueberries. I've never had any issue with them before, so it's worrying me. My fruits and my leaves are experiencing some weird situations.
I've removed some mulch away from the trunk. I haven't done anything different this year than to prune them last year. I depp water once a week unless there's a lot of rain.

What is the acidity of your soil there?
What is the ratio of berries to leaves? Not all varieties are compatible with others. You get a much better yield by planting different varieties.
I do not see much in the way of fruit.
Do you fertilize them at all, with what?

Blueberries need an acid soil of around 5.2-5.6, maybe 5.8. They will not be happy without it.
