Vinegar will kill everything. Use boiling water only on the weeds in the garden. I don't what lemon juice does to weeds but it does repel mosquitoes .
Joanne: Lemon juice can be pricey. Vinegar works just fine. I put a gallon in a pump like this:
No need for the lemon juice unless you want to make a vinaigrette. Vinegar can kill anything you spray it on, so please be careful.

Yes, veggie plants and flowers will be killed if sprayed with this mixture, but here are a couple of easy suggestions. First, don’t use lemon juice. Vinegar is much cheaper and breaks down the plant fibers so they can’t carry water to the plants. I add salt to vinegar to aid in the root-drying process. Second, cut the bottom out of a half gallon milk or water jug. Then hold the jug over only the weeds, and spray through the mouth of the jug. Dead weeds; live good plants. So you can kill what you are aiming at without damaging your vegetables. Best wishes for you garden!
