I've always wondered, did Mike Farrell grow it during the off season thus making the show have to make mention of it during the first episode of season 7, or did the show have the idea first of B.J. growing a mustache, thus requiring Mike Farrell to grow one?

I think it was more Mike grew it and it was just written into the show?? Funny how Hawk got more grief for being out of uniform than BJ did for the stache! But General Barker on "Chief Surgeon Who?"
and " Requiem for a Lightweight" had one? Played by Sorrell Booke who later played Boss Hogg on the Dukes of Hazzard!

As I recall, it was Alan Alda's idea for B.J. to grow the mustache, in just looking for other ways to further distinguish Hawkeye and B.J. apart from each other.
