Any sign that's out there in the elements is going to get worn off.  It's the nature of things. 
 
At the Clinton Community garden, we use metal commercially fabricated number signs. But after 10 years or so, they get worn away, so we buy new ones.  That's why sign makers children don't starve. 
 
The easiest thing to do is to make maintaining the plot number sign a responsiblity of each gardener. Once they take ownership, there will be more permanent signs made, or the numbers will be kept from washing away by gardeners who use their own markers at the end of the season. 
 
Or you can create a numbered plot number map, collect the signs at the end of the season, put them in the shed before the snow starts and then put them out in the spring, the numbers having been freshened up during the winter months between bouts of snow-shoeing, hockey, drinking carabou or good beer, going to the Montreal Ballet,  or whatever you folks do in Eastern Canada with the time you save when your government  doesn't have to invade and destroy foreign countries in order to save them. ;)

Any suggestions about how to effectively place the numbers of garden plots on
the wooden stakes marking each plot. We have 100 and it was tedious writing
the numbers with markers and they washed off after several years. Appreciate
any advice; enjoy all the postings to this site. Thanks,

Jude in eastern Canada
