"whether the pleasure of making a daisy-chain would be worth the trouble of getting up and picking the daisies".
As I get, word "whether" is about ("making daisy-chain WORTH" or "not WORTH")? About the "cost", which action is more "expensive", "making a diasy-chain" or "getting up and picking the daisies".
Am I right?

I had to read your paragraph a few times to understand it, but yes, I believe you understand this sentence correctly.
That is not a sentence, but a fragment. I'm assuming the original is something like:
" (I'm trying to determine) whether the pleasure of making a daisy-chain would be worth the trouble of getting up and picking the daisies"
This sentence is trying to say that getting up and picking the daises requires a lot of effort (in this case, the word trouble is used), so the author is not sure if they want to make a daisy chain, despite the fact they enjoy it, because of how much effort picking the daisies requires.
Here is another example:
"I'm not sure whether the better taste of a homemade pizza crust is worth the trouble of rolling out the dough myself."
Does that clear things up?
Good job by the way... this is a more difficult sentence to understand. =)
