Just make sure you don't have too much mulch there for when you water the next time and so on that the all the moisture is being kept in the mulch and not getting into the ground and that the area isn't super moist where mold and fungus will grow. For my tomatoes and other plants I had a small layer of pine straw around the plants.

If you can avoid watering at the peak hour of sunlight.... it will cause the least amount of water to get into the plants. And always avoid watering when there is a lack of sun ie depending on area like 6pm till 6am. That will cause nasty plant problems and can cause them to be killed off by fungus.
