What does Genesis 1:12 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Genesis 1:12

And the earth brought forth grass
In great abundance at once; the hills and vales were clothed with it, and so a rich provision was made the beasts and cattle of the earth two or three days before they were created: [and] herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding
fruit, whose seed was in itself after his kind:
wholesome and healthful herbs and plants, and delicious fruit to be meat and food for man, ready prepared for him when created; see ( Genesis 1:29-30 ) on this day, though after related, were made the garden of Eden, and all the trees in it, pleasant for sight, and good for food; and particularly the tree of life, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil; and God saw that it [was] good;
which he had now caused to spring forth, grass, herbs, and fruit trees, which were good for men and beast, and this he foresaw would be so; (See Gill on Genesis 1:4).
