It could have been weather, but typically when you have an across the board crop failure like that, some element is missing from the soil. I would strongly recommend taking a soil sample to the local extension service and having them test it. A severe micro nutrient deficiency (of which it could be many and only a soil test will tell) could cause this to happen. It could also be too much nitrogen in the soil or a lack of pollinators in the area.
