Will table salt harm my tomato and squash plants if I use it to kill the grass by my plants?

In a word...yes. You are much better off to use a hoe, or hand weed around the plants. It will take a little time, but is better for your plants and your garden (salt may prevent other things from growing for one or more seasons, depending on how much you use and how you apply it.) Once you weed, you can use mulch to discourage the weeds from coming back. That and a few minutes of hand-weeding each week will keep your plants looking great!
