Surely somebody can do something with these...

That's good stuff, man. I use a celery pattern pattern much like this for my forests.

Heh, they do look like forest. If that's all you ate, I'm thinking you must be a vegetarian....that's a lot of kale!

I remember picking a lot of kale back in my farm days, but never thought to use it for texture :P
Usually I use moss, but this looks nifty!

Yeah it totally looks like it belongs on one of those miniature Railroad station models

I'm mossly lichen it!

(yes, technically it's a vascular green plant, but that's the first thing that came to mind when I saw it).

Its two bits of Kale rearranged in three different ways. And I ate other stuff with it... which was just as well cos it tastes pretty disgusting if you ask me. I'll try it again only if I am diagnosed with an iron deficiency or something.

That's not bad at all. I'll snag them for future use...and it reminds me that I have a ton of model scenery stuff (lichen, etc.) around here for model railroading, mini basing, and so forth. Have to see about photographing some of it.

Because anybody eating Kale deserves all the reward I can give. :)

Here is a gif pattern made from the above....

Here is a test I made during lunch...not much to look at and I was mainly testing out various tools with it and layer stuff but hey, I think it'll work great. Remember, I'm a still a bit of a noob with Gimp and this is just a quickie.

Well done texturers. Heres my stab at something with 20 mins spare tonight even tho I am supposed to be doing something else but that's boring...

I made it seamless using my seamless tut technique - search for that if you think you need to (plug plug heh!) and flattened it with my filter which is now a gimp plugin thanks to RobA known as the Redrobes High Pass filter for which I am duly proud LOL :)

Its still not trees but were getting there. Maybe with many pseudo tree textures I will make it otherwise I will have to build a kite and nail a camera to it. But for the time being try this one.
