I am too sick to plant them this weekend.
networkn: Any ideas where I can get some Jersey Bennie Seed Potatoes ready to go into the ground?

At a garden shop or garden department in a hardware store.
If you read the link Timmmay posted above, then time to harvest is 80-90 days. So relax - you've got plenty of time. It may be too early to plant - the new shoots don't like frost. The stores may not even have seed potato stock in yet.
andrewbnz: You still have plenty of time, I normally plant Swift or jersey Benne in late September and they are ready for Christmas day. I will normally buy them mid--late august and sprout them a few weeks before planting.
andrewbnz: Um... I usually buy a bag of seed potatoes and split if with my father. In the past I have got between 10-20kg of spuds
