Vacation from gardening

The gardener in the family is going to be travelling from July through December, leaving me home alone with assorted pets and a large, wild vegetable garden. What's the best, lazy way to NOT garden this summer?
I don't want to have to deal with more than keeping the grass cut, picking cherry tomatoes and herbs. I also don't want to have friends or neighbours dropping by to garden for me since I really value having privacy and some solo time. We have a lot of weeds, but otherwise it's a standard Toronto garden, lots of cats and raccoons in the area too.
What's the best way to cover or rest most of the garden this year assuming minimal maintenance? Is there something we can do make the soil better or to minimize weeds for next year?
