looking for pistachio and almond seeds

I have a couple pistachio seedlings that survived my cruelty and neglect while moving and building a house last year, but I don't know yet whether I have a male and female.  I'd like some better odds.

As far as almonds go, a mouse got into my cold stratification bin and munched all my sprouted almonds just as we were moving.  Very sad.  I do have one almond that was already established, but one is not enough!

If anyone would be kind enough to mail me a few fresh nuts from their trees when they're ready, I'd be very happy to pay shipping and some extra for your trouble.  I don't have a lot of seeds at the moment, but if you're looking for something in exchange, let me know and I can tell you what I can get my hands on.  Maybe some of it will interest you.

The kink here is that I'm in Canada.  Generally if packages are labelled as a gift and not valued at more than $20CAD there isn't an issue coming over the border.  I'm fine with the risk if you are.

We have no internet at home and I generally have very little internet time at work, but I'll try to be on here as often as I can.  Please don't be offended if it takes me a week to answer!
