How to run docker images with LKE and terraform

Honestly I'm struggling to articulate what I'm trying to ask.

I'm trying to deploy a cluster of my microservices using Terraform. I have all the microservices published on a private docker repo but I have no idea how to load those docker images into my kubernetes cluster.

I feel like I'm doing something wrong but I can't tell what. Is there some tutorial out there that demonstrated the full pipeline from terraform init to terraform apply and seeing the docker containers run on Linode?

There's an example of how to deploy a workload from a private Docker registry in this guide:

For managing Kubernetes workloads with Terraform, the best place to start would be the docs:

I would also like to share this video titled Terraform Tutorial For Beginners to create docker container | docker container with terraform that may be useful. The person here isn't using Linode, however, they are using Terraform to deploy their docker containers.
