I put my huge aloe vera plant on the deck and the morning sun scorched
most of it. It is in total shade in the afternoon. It is now an
ugly plant. I will probably toss it out. What's the best way to
start a young plant?

They usually make shoots which can be transplanted. I toss dozens of
them every year. It is amazing how much aloe burns in the sun,
considering that it goes into so many anti-burn preparations. It will
recover, though, if given time. I put them out for the summer and they
get burned every time, but come september you would not be able to tell.
