Dill Plants

Is dill still safe and good to use once the seeds have turned brown?

Some of the dill has turned brown while parts of it have not. Should I use the brown parts for pickles or not?

I wouldn't. It doesn't taste very good. No sense in ruining perfectly good pickles! Use only the green parts. Still, after it starts to go to seed, the flavor of the plant is way less than desirable.
