cDNA library of early meiosis!!

I am trying to extract mRNA from an extremely small amount of tissue.  Using
wheat anthers undergoing early meiosis to be specific.  This material is
very precious and I would like to know if anyone has a good reliable
protocol for extracting good quality poly A mRNA from this small amount of
tissue.  How much tissue is enough??? Will be used in construction of an EST
database specific for wheat meiosis.

Thanks for you help!!
