“And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.”
King James Version (KJV)

To me the covering for Adam and Eve was made from animal skins, hence the first blood sacrifice.

Thank you i wondered if the covering they had was eternal without corruption and then the body was to return to dust and the animals returneb to dust since they were formed from the earth was this skin out on and taken off ir was it actually skin that they wore that was take to the ground to teturn to dust.,thank you so much for your responce. Blessings

Donna, my understanding is that Adam & Eve had natural skin just as we have (the epidermis, dermis & hypodermis), yet prior to their downfall into sin, that skin, as all their organs, would have never corrupted to bring on sickness, disease or death.
With the inception of sin into their lives, their conviction of it, & subsequent attempt to hide from God, showed that that sin also brought the sense of bodily shame, which they never had before. The eyes & minds of those once pure & holy were now subject to the effects of sin, & one of those effects was the sense of shame & need for covering. They initially used fig leaves for covering but the Lord gave them something more durable by way of animal skins. And this in the larger picture showed them that animals could now also be killed, whether for their skin/fur value or later on, in sacrifice & for food.

Yes, animal skins.
Donna's comment on 2020-10-25 06:04:32:
I wonder when God clothed Adam and Eve with skins was this the skins of animals. Was this our outer covering.

The "dry" land is the meek heart dried up the waters of evil speaking. Happy are the "poor in spirit"that is, poor in breath as they will be swift to hear His opened mouth teaching and slow to speak.poor in words.
Matthew 5:2-3 KJV
(2) And he opened his mouth, and taught them, saying,
(3) Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
The good ground.the honest and good heartshall hear the Word and keep it and bring forth the fruit of righteousness towards His teaching of the Word of God.
Luke 8:15-16 KJV
(15) But that on the good ground are they, which in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience.
The earth shall bring forth "grass"that is, peace within the heart. The fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace. They will act in the wisdom that descends from above and not in that earthly, devilish wisdom that is from below the Heaven.
James 3:18 KJV
(18) And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.
The herb yielding seed after his kind is faith in what they hear Him saying. There are different degrees of faith. The fruit tree yielding fruit whose seed is in itself is the kingdom of God within us that can grow into a great tree. We are to be His planting of the trees of His righteousness.
Luke 13:18-19 KJV
(18) Then said he, Unto what is the kingdom of God like? and whereunto shall I resemble it?
(19) It is like a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and cast into his garden; and it grew, and waxed a great tree; and the fowls of the air lodged in the branches of it.
The seed within us is able to save our souls but we must be "dry" within the heart of all superfluity of naughtiness that overflows the heart in words. We must be doers of His Word.
James 1:21 KJV
(21) Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls.

Gods design for perpetuity of His creation was inbuilt in every kind of seed. Awesome
lonniedifranco's comment on 2015-09-12 05:33:44:
Does anybody know why it says the plants trees herbs bring forth after HIS kind? I subscribe to the idea that the King James Version is the most accurate and infallible Word of God- and only today did I notice that the other versions say, "after ITS kind" or "after THEIR kind" when referring to the vegetation. What significance does this have, if any? I think it is rather curious, but I have to assume that God used the words "after HIS kind" specifically, and for a reason. Thoughts? Thank you, and God bless :
