It appears that in Gen 1:12, by the end of Day 3 there were plants and trees covering the dry land:
Gen 1:11 And God said, "Let the earth sprout vegetation, plants yielding seed, and fruit trees bearing fruit in which is their seed, each according to its kind, on the earth." And it was so. Gen 1:12 The earth brought forth vegetation, plants yielding seed according to their own kinds, and trees bearing fruit in which is their seed, each according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. Gen 1:13 And there was evening and there was morning, the third day.
But in Genesis 2:5-6 it specifically says that the plants had not sprung up because rain had not been implemented yet and there was no man to work the ground:
Gen 2:5 When no bush of the field was yet in the land and no small plant of the field had yet sprung up—for the LORD God had not caused it to rain on the land, and there was no man to work the ground, Gen 2:6 and a mist was going up from the land and was watering the whole face of the ground— Gen 2:7 then the LORD God formed the man of dust from the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living creature. Gen 2:8 And the LORD God planted a garden in Eden, in the east, and there he put the man whom he had formed. Gen 2:9 And out of the ground the LORD God made to spring up every tree that is pleasant to the sight and good for food. The tree of life was in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Gen 2:10 A river flowed out of Eden to water the garden, and there it divided and became four rivers.
So at the end of Day 3 was the land covered only with seeds? And if so, wouldn't the mist have germinated them without rain? And why was a man needed to till the ground since "the earth brought forth vegetation" just fine on Day 3?
