What to plant in off year

Hi everyone! My 2018 season is finally getting started!

I am planning to give some of my soil a rest this year, as I keep my garden as something I can comfortably manage with my full+ time job.. I was wondering what I should do with unused soil. Add some kind of legume or ground cover and just let it go? Mulch heavily with leaves? Any suggestions? I was considering planting squash, but in my weedy soil even squash won't keep the weeds down by itself.
