Effort versus result

We live in Riyadh. The temperature in summer reaches near 50-degree centigrade. We always fancied growing vegetables in our balcony. We choose to grow tomatoes and chillies as a trial. We bought seeds from the market. My wife prepared pots and soil.
From seeds, many tomato plants came out.

Many tomato plants grew well, and they also came with many flowers. Three flowers were lucky enough to grow into the next stage. Among them, one fruit died before it reached maturity. Another fruit became handicapped and third one matured well and ripened with excellent colour.

The plant itself has dried up because of heat (summer in Riyadh). However, the mother plant is supporting the two remaining tomato fruits. Was it worth all the effort of watering and time spend on it? Ultimately are we are happy.
