How to automatically add tags to droplets in Kubernetes cluster

I am automating the Kubernetes cluster following the starter kit: https://github.com/digitalocean/Kubernetes-Starter-Kit-Developers/tree/main/15-automate-with-terraform-flux

Our database is managed PG database on DO (outside of kubernetes cluster). In order to allow connection to DB, I need to add a tag to the droplets. How can I do that automatically? Or there is a better way to do it?
